School Leadership

Great schools require great leaders. Education leaders are identified, developed, and supported through the Leadership Pipeline, a collaboration with Hamilton County Department of Education.

How will 75 jobs transform our community? Through a culture that values leadership.

Hamilton County Department of Education, Public Education Foundation, local foundations, businesses, and individuals have come together to launch a comprehensive Leadership Pipeline to support aspiring, new, and veteran principals.

The goal of the Pipeline is to significantly change the system of principal selection and support within 5 years, moving the school district from one with principals who work in isolation to a district with 75 outstanding instructional leaders.

Hamilton County Department of Education leaders will:

  1. Increase the academic achievement of all students
  2. Know effective instruction and assessment and use this knowledge to strengthen teaching
  3. Build honest and effective relationships with students, parents, teachers, and community members
  4. Fiercely advocate for all students.

These principals will inspire 3,000 teachers who in turn transform the future of 42,000 students, with a potential $620 million impact to the economy.
