Advancing Teacher Leadership in Aurora Schools

In the summer of 2017, Leading Educators and the district launched the inaugural cohort of the “Advancing Teacher Leadership in Aurora Schools” (ATLAS) program.

During the one year program, ATLAS operated in 10 district schools with 60 teacher leaders who led content-alike teams of their peers. The ATLAS program is a key component of the district’s plan to empower school-based leaders to lead professional development as they make the transition to rigorous college and career readiness standards.

Participants in the Atlas program create a 3D model together.
