Where it all Started

Louisiana became the flagship site for Leading Educators’ original teacher leadership development program in 2008.

Since then, our model has evolved to provide customized, instructional improvement support and custom professional learning design to a network of single- and multi-site charter management organizations (CMOs). Leading Educators is uniquely prepared to support state-wide efforts to implement Tier 1 curricula and aligned collaborative planning time. Using an inquiry-based model, LE supports instructional leaders to plan and facilitate weekly or biweekly collaborative planning in schools to expand opportunity for students.
