A Conservative Projection To address this urgent need, we must: • Think strategically about our pipeline; • Be proactive about leadership development; and • Involve all current district leaders in our efforts. 48 Principal Vacancies through 2011
Broad Foundation Grant • LBUSD is one of just three districts to receive funds. • $2.7 million over three years. • Comprehensive principal development process: • Recruitment • Selection • Training • Placement • Ongoing Support The programs and the grant will allow us to build multiple pathways to the principalship.
