Funding Opportunity: Model P-20 Partnerships for Principal Preparation Grant

The New York State Education Department (the Department) will use state set-aside monies from its federal Title IIA funds to establish model P-20 partnerships for principal preparation. Partners will collaborate on the re-design of preparation programs so aspiring building leaders who emerge are better equipped to take on the challenges of leading high-need schools and to achieve improved outcomes for all students. The ultimate vision is to spur and support a growing statewide network of Regional P-20 Partnership Programs that share the aim of improving principal preparation and thus enhancing staff and school performance and contributing to improved student academic success. The Department’s vision is that one day such programs will enable sizable cohorts of candidates to participate in clinically-rich, full-year, full-time, internships at no cost to the candidate.

The Game is Changing. What Will Be Expected of You?

“When we were doing our studies for the National Academies, the typical first response of university presidents or CFOs or provosts was to say: ‘I understand things are changing very rapidly, but I'll ask my CIO to take care of it.

Who fixes the problem?’ They begin to scratch their heads, and pretty soon it's like the five phases of grief. They start off with denial and anger, move through bargaining and depression, and finally reach acceptance.” — James J. Duderstadt, Change and the Research University
