The Center for Leadership and Educational Equity (CLEE) is a non-profit dedicated to creating equitable outcomes for all students by providing a wide variety of leaders (teacher, student, building and district leaders) with professional learning and support. Our programs focus on building leaders for equity. The Center runs two leadership development programs: the Principal Residency Network (PRN) and the Learning Leader Network (LLN). Established in 2000, the PRN is a residency-based administrator certification program and also provides novice principal induction support for new leaders. The LLN, established in 2005, runs multiple professional learning services for a wide variety of leaders. All of CLEE’s programming engages leaders in a community of practice to strengthen facilitative leadership knowledge, skills and dispositions through cycles of continuous improvement to improve the instructional core and increase equitable outcomes for all students. The programs occur over sustained periods of engagement, leverage the diversity of educators, students and school contexts, and use student learning data to anchor improvement efforts. Our impact research demonstrates that the more that schools and leaders enact the core leadership practices they learn through our programs, the more they increase learning for underserved groups and their peers.
