Cohort 3

Cohort 3 will be enrolled from Fall 2020 to Fall 2021. In a collaborative effort with Houston ISD, APLUS recruited 10 in-service school leaders to be engaged in a one-half day service as an instructional coach and one-half day residency as a campus leader/administrator. These 10 in-service school leaders, who are from diverse ethnic groups and desire to lead high-needs diverse campuses, are in a Tier 2 teacher leadership position, such as instructional coordinators.
