Leaders of Leaders
The Leaders of Leaders program supports the success of Neubauer Fellowship in Educational Leadership alumni (“Senior Fellows”) who have been promoted to system leadership positions in Philadelphia beyond the principalship. Senior Fellows serve in executive leadership positions – such as Assistant Superintendent and Chief Executive Officer – and face a new set of day-to-day challenges and opportunities.
Participation in the Leaders of Leaders program is limited to Senior Neubauer Fellows who supervise or support principals in Philadelphia.
Utilizing the successful cross-sector approach of the Neubauer Fellowship, the Leaders of Leaders program convenes Senior Fellows working in system leadership roles across the district, charter, and faith-based school sectors.
