NCPAPA Seeks Candidates for 2020-2021 Distinguished Leadership in Practice Cohort
The North Carolina Principals & Assistant Principals' Association (NCPAPA) is now accepting applications for 2020-2021 Distinguished Leadership in Practice (DLP) cohort. The application period runs through January 31st with applicants being selected and notified by February 15, 2020.
DLP Program Description
This professional development model, entitled Distinguished Leadership in Practice (DLP), is aligned to the performance evaluation standards adopted by the State Board of Education for North Carolina’s school leaders.

DLP, a non-traditional professional development model, allows participants to critically examine the meaning and application of “Distinguished” school leadership through a problem-based, real-world approach. In DLP, practicing North Carolina principals are provided as models of exemplary school leadership allowing participants to study the behaviors, attitudes and competencies that define a “Distinguished” school leader. Throughout the year-long experience, participants are led and coached through a proven continuous improvement approach. Participants engage in a series of authentic activities designed to build the capacity of their schools and their own capacity as “Distinguished” school leaders.

DLP uses a blended, cohort-based approach that combines face-to-face, on-line, and small-group sharing sessions. To limit time away from their schools, participants attend face-to-face sessions once every other month. In between face-to-face sessions, they access on-line material and on-line coaching to assist them with their school improvement activities. They also participate in guided small-group sessions with cohort members where they share and receive feedback on their efforts to apply proven leadership practices in their schools.

The program will be offered in Chapel Hill. Expenses, excluding mileage, for this opportunity are being subsidized through a grant funding.Therefore, applicants must be able to commit to participating fully in all face-to-face and online sessions.
