Executive Summary 

New Leaders is committed to ensuring that schools in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) improve student outcomes and attain the instructional practice goals outlined as a part of the Cleveland Plan.  Since September 2013, New Leaders has provided a range of supports in CMSD; first to Phase I Investment School principals and schools, and most recently to Phase II Investment School principals.  This proposal recommends supports for principals and for teacher leaders across the District, not just within the Investment School networks.  Through this set of proposed professional development programs from New Leaders, we expect to see demonstrated improvements in the practice of principals and teacher leaders around instructional leadership, adult leadership, human capital development and personal leadership.  We also expect to see demonstrated progress toward instructional improvement goals in participating schools.
