Leadership program offered to superintendents, principals

Maine Development Foundation is accepting applications for the beta class of Leadership Maine: Education Leaders Experience now through June 1. Once again, we are partnering with Unum and the Maine Principals’ Association to offer an exceptional program for K-12 educational leaders. Participants in the program refine their leadership skills and join a vibrant community of business and community leaders in Maine as they create a thriving state for our students and neighbors.

The program offers established educational leaders a powerful growth opportunity to expand and refine their leadership skills. Participants have exclusive access to key community and business leaders, providing meaningful insight into aligning the strategies used to develop Maine students with the critical needs of the state’s economy and communities. Over the course of the program, which spans 12 months and takes place over 10 days, participants learn about their personal strengths and opportunities for growth, and examine the leadership styles of government, non-profit, corporate and educational leaders in Maine. Leaders graduate inspired to act on their personal vision.

Participants are selected for their leadership capacities, talents, and life experiences and share a core commitment to helping Maine students reach their full potential.

Many success stories have already come from relationships forged and opportunities presented in the inaugural alpha class of the program, leading to positive change in the state. Superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals and assistant principals are invited to apply now to join the beta class and participate in this life-changing experience.

Individual cost for the program is $1,000. Scholarships and financial aid are available, as is graduate credit for the program. To apply by the June 1 deadline, visit: mdf.org/lm_ele_appmat.php.
