Executive Principal Program

The Fund’s Executive Principal Program is a unique year-long opportunity for two principals to work and grow together.  

The program is designed to develop, retain and celebrate Chicago’s principals by facilitating a close partnership between two school leaders, an Executive Principal and a Partner Principal.  

Through an intentional matching model, an Executive Principal, an experienced, high-achieving leader, is paired with a Partner Principal, a newer leader who demonstrates interest in individual coaching. These principals are paired based on complementary strength and growth areas as well as school demographics.   

The 2018-19 Cohort includes three principal pairs from across the city.
