Granite School District has been selected to participate in the George W. Bush Institute’s School Leadership District Cohort, a professional learning community consisting of four selected school districts across the U.S.
“We have chosen four school districts that understand how critical school leadership is to improving student outcomes,” said Eva Chiang, Deputy Director of Education Reform at the Bush Institute.
Granite will work hand-in-hand with the Bush Institute’s Education Reform team to implement their Principal Talent Management Framework. The Framework was published in 2016 as a part of the School Leadership Initiative, formerly known as The Alliance to Reform Leadership (AREL).
“This collaboration will help the district continue to work to find and develop the best administrative talent to in-turn strengthen instructional leadership in our schools,” Superintendent Bates said.
Over the course of a three-year period, the Bush Institute will work with Granite to identify individual needs related to each Framework component and build district-level capacity accordingly. The Bush Institute will also provide expert coaching, access to tools and resources, and other support to the district professional learning community
