21 Goal

22 The Council on Post-Secondary Education, the University of Louisville, the Jefferson County Public Schools and the Kentucky Department of Education’s District 180 are collaborating to build a leadership development cadre for work in turnaround schools across the Commonwealth. Kentucky statute 160.346 requires support for leadership in our schools and with the reductions in federal and state funding streams, it is critical to build internal capacity to develop and support building level leaders in sustainable ways. Ultimately this work will ensure that there is an increase in the number of well-trained principals available for turnaround schools and situations. Frequently we did not find principals who met those criteria when hiring for the Priority Schools.


24 Through our District 180 organizational framework we have three regions across Kentucky: East Central West Cadres of NISL participants will be organized in each of these regions Cadres will be led by NISL trained Kentucky educational recovery staff, university faculty, and KDE staff.

25 Our timeline is to begin the first cadres in June 2014 and continue through the 2014-15 school year with our first NISL graduates being fully certified by June 2015. Interested candidates should send inquiries to:
