The Academy for Promising Leaders of Urban Schools (APLUS) was designed (1) to prepare assistant principal for New York City's urban schools, and (2) as the foundation of a continuum of planned leadership development. Piloted during the 2006-2007 academic year, APLUS is a partnership effort among higher education, PK-12 public schools, and a nonprofit consulting organization funded by the Goldman Sachs and Hewlett Packard Foundations. This article provides a discussion of: (1) APLUS characteristics and unique features; (2) APLUS fellows; and (3) APLUS program evaluation and expansion.
