Leadership Enhancement and Development (LEAD): A Flourishing Product of School and University Collaboration.
Bruce, Ray E.
This paper describes the development and implementation of the Georgia Leadership Enhancement and Development (LEAD) program in the Gwinnett County School District. Implemented during the 1988-89 school year, the program is based on collaboration between the University of Georgia and the school district. Participants in the 12-month program are required to complete a one-quarter, fulltime internship; a seminar practicum; and 30 credit-hours of course work. The school system has completely funded tuition and book costs for participants, who aspire to become lead teachers, assistant principals, or principals. Over the years, the curriculum has been modified in response to participants' recommendations. Courses deal with supervision, supervision instruction, curriculum planning, leadership for staff development, school administration, personnel administration, and group processes. Each participant has continued to demonstrate outstanding performance in the classroom while responding effectively to the heavy demands of the LEAD program. A lesson learned is that active support of district leadership is essential for the program's success. (LMI)
