Southern Nevada Educators Encouraged to Apply for Educational Leadership Courses
Applications Open to all Public/Private Licensed Educators

(Las Vegas) – Vegas PBS and the Clark County Education Association have partnered to bring together Southern Nevada’s best and brightest educational leaders through the program ‘Learn to Lead: Building Great Educators through Leadership Pathways.’

Learn to Lead, grant-funded by the Nevada Department of Education, is designed to impact an educator’s ability to lead a classroom, school, district or community to that next level in educational success. By combining collaborative and cooperative classroom modules, online coursework via Vegas PBS’ interactive online training portal, independent research, collaborative workshops, expert keynotes and peer-to-peer mentoring, educators will develop and use these skills to lead them through a successful capstone project. This program allows educators to advance in several aspects:

  • Increasing their network of other like-minded educator-leaders
  • Becoming an active and influential member of School Operation Teams (SOTs) and other educational committees
  • Leading educator support networks to motivate new teachers to stay in the profession
  • Implementing successful capstones to improve the school’s effectiveness
  • Inspiring students, colleagues and parents through poise and command of leadership
  • Being acknowledged as an educational leader with the go-to skills to lead peers
  • Receive 6 renewal credits and 30 contact units

Only 105 educators will be accepted for the 2017-2018 term. There will be three cohort groups, with the first starting September 30. Total cost of tuition is $120. Those interested should apply online to find course information, cohort/module schedules and program requirements.
