Strong leadership skills are essential for charter school leaders to navigate the challenging times ahead of their organization during an unprecedented academic year and beyond. Leading in the Unknown is a three-part series featuring charter sector experts who provide real world applications on leading teams through change, maintaining a strategic focus, tracking success, and sustaining impact. Each module in the series includes four components – a webinar with implementation strategies and guided self-reflection workbook, an interview with a charter school leader on putting the content into practice, an Office Hour, and a summary resource of key takeaways.
Nearly one in every 10 students nationally are classified as an English Learner (EL). Charter schools are uniquely positioned to serve EL students based on the autonomy in the charter promise and their ability to be nimble in response to community and student needs. This multi-part learning experience provides charter school leaders and directors of academic learning with an overview of EL education and available resources to support EL education in charter schools. It also includes brief profiles and lessons learned of two Charter School Programs grantees who are experiencing results in educating EL students.
