Charter Schools: Leadership Training Academy Workbook.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
As part of the Model Leadership Training Program for charter-school founders and leaders, a workbook representing the training component developed during the first year was prepared. During the first year, 12 teams of charter-school founders and leaders (N=48) participated in the Charter School Leadership Training Academy. The workbook provides the resources, information, and structure for the Academy sessions. It features training materials, training exercises, curriculum, and additional resources in all areas of charter-school development. Although each session does not specifically correspond with a core content area, the training does cover all five core content areas: startup logistics; curriculum standards and assessment development; governance and management; community relations; and regulatory issues. The training material was designed for a 5-day workshop, but each session is self-contained and can be used as individual training sessions. The curriculum for each lesson can be used to develop a conference or training session, and developers can use the text for additional resources and advice.
