The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) takes a comprehensive approach to improving the quality of education for students by developing a cadre of school leaders committed to eliminating the achievement gap. The ELP is designed to address the critical need for quality leaders in urban schools.
The University of Memphis and Christian Brothers University are partners in this unique endeavor. The strong connection to higher education institutions provides ELP residents an opportunity to earn a certification in urban education, along with additional CEU or college credit. The ELP program is closely aligned with Tennessee Instructional Leadership Standards (TILS) and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC).
The ELP utilizes a teaching hospital concept. The learning model provides a recursive process for problem analysis, knowledge application, diagnosis, strategy development, treatment, and outcome analysis.
Facilitators guide the cohort during the program, lead instruction and conduct site visits to monitor progress. This relationship is ongoing through the Planning Summer. Each candidate is assigned a mentor (building-level principal) who guides their development beginning with the School Residency experience and continuing through the first three years of leadership.
Attendees have the opportunity to earn an Urban Education Certification through the University of Memphis. Tuition for external applicants is $4,000 for the 14 month program. Ask for details.
