As a Wallace Foundation “Principal Pipeline” Initiative school district, Prince George’s County Public Schools in Maryland, shared their approach to building a principal pipeline using four key levers:
- Developing leadership standards
- Creating pre-service preparation programs
- Selective hiring process and “best fit” placement
- Providing on-the-job evaluation and support
Prince George’s County not only spoke to what it takes to build the pipeline but, more importantly, what it takes to operate, sustain, and scale the work of leadership development in a large urban district.
