How will Relay Leadership Programs strengthen our day-to-day work in schools?

Down arrow icon

All Leadership Programs provide leaders with practical, robust training that can immediately be put into practice in schools. Leaders walk away with concrete tools, implementation plans, and a clearer vision to make the practices they learn immediately come alive in their schools.

Who are the facilitators / Relay faculty?

Down arrow icon

Across programs, sessions are led by experienced leaders who have “walked the walk.” Each member of our instructional faculty has achieved proven results in schools and is an accomplished facilitator of adult learning.

How do we decide which program is best for our leaders?

Down arrow icon

We offer a suite of programs to meet leaders at each stage of their development. The best way to choose the right program is to review program descriptions and then request a call with a Leadership Programs team to share your staff’s needs and discuss the best program fit.

How do leaders get feedback?

Down arrow icon

We believe in the power of regular, high quality practice and feedback. Leaders will get live feedback in multiple ways:

  1. During “deliberate practice” opportunities taking place during the session
  2. Via video submission of “authentic practice” in their schools.

Feedback is always provided by expert coaches who have a sharp eye and genuine eagerness to help sharpen practice.

Do you offer in-person, hybrid, and virtual program options?

The program modality (in-person, hybrid, or virtual) varies by program and is decided based on what will offer the best experience to partners and individual participants in each unique program. Please see details in each program’s description.

What COVID-19 safety protocols and requirements will be put in place for in-person programming?

Down arrow icon

We are committed to the health and safety of our participants and staff.  All participants, presenters, and staff will need to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated to attend in-person programming.

Instructions on how to easily and securely submit your proof of vaccination will be included as individuals enroll in Leadership Programs. Please note: A negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted in lieu of proof of full vaccination.

In-person attendees will be required to follow any other timely guidance from the CDC, potentially including wearing masks and social distancing.

When will the summer intensive schedule be published?

We will publish the detailed schedule of sessions for the summer intensives by March 15th, 2023.
