The New York City Department of Education’s Division of Academics, Performance and Support (DAPS) Office of Leadership has just launched its new Leadership Pathways website, with Bank Street College’s own Principals Institute featured prominently on its database of Leadership Development Opportunities.
The Leadership Pathways site was created by the DOE to support and advance the growth of current and future leaders in its system. The website provides details on a range of leadership development opportunities and offers an overview of resources available to support school and building leaders. The programs listed on the site provide professional development experiences and opportunities for new, aspiring, and experienced school leaders. The Leadership Pathways site is a great, new online resource for the development and recognition of our school leaders.
The Principals Institute at Bank Street College is a Leadership Program designed for educators in New York City public schools aiming to focus on the challenges of urban education, effective strategies for educating diverse learners, and the “nuts and bolts” of NYC school leadership. The program has a strong focus on instructional leadership, incorporating special education leadership, and includes an intensive advisory and internship component. The Principals Institute takes place in a cohort format over 18 months and leads to a Master of Education (36 credits) or Master of Science in Education (39 credits). Students who complete all degree requirements successfully are recommended for New York State School Building Leader (SBL) certification. There is also an opportunity for New York State School District Leader (SDL) certification as part of an additional 5-credit program.
