"Racing to the Top" to Prepare Turnaround Principals in North Carolina: Homegrown Regional Leadership Academies
Brown, Kathleen M.
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v27 p101-144 Mar 2016
North Carolina's Race to the Top (RttT) grant earmarked approximately $17.5 million to "increase the number of principals qualified to lead transformational change in low-performing schools in both rural and urban areas" (NCDPI, 2010, p.10). To accomplish this, the state established three Regional Leadership Academies (RLAs) "approved for certifying principals [and] designed to . . . provide a new model for the preparation, early career support, and continuous professional development of school leaders" (NCDPI, 2010, p.10). This article describes the independent evaluation of this initiative including the recruitment, selection, training, placement, and expenditure processes associated with each RLA.
