A Brownstown principal recently was selected to participate in the fifth cohort of the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute at Indiana State University’s Bayh College of Education.
Chrystal Street of Brownstown Elementary School is one of 59 principals to participate in the fifth institute cohort Tuesday and Wednesday.
Cohort No. 5 will be mentored by 11 trained mentors. These mentors are experienced Indiana school leaders, and they will play a key role in guiding smaller regional focus cohorts in their areas of the state.
The institute is a two-year experience designed to address the professional needs of Indiana public school principals with an emphasis on student success, according to a news release.
The institute is designed to increase a principal’s capacity to address the current needs of her/his school, such as effective instruction, student performance, community involvement and shaping a strong school culture.
In addition to the targeted work with each cohort, the institute is committed to serving as a resource for all Indiana principals, their schools and their school communities. This includes sharing research, providing access to leadership assessments and offering tools to develop action research plans.
