Leadership Programs FAQs
Answers to common questions about how Relay's Leadership Programs work.
How will Relay Leadership Programs strengthen our day-to-day work in schools?
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?
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?
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 complete the interest form to share your staff’s needs and discuss the best program fit.
How do leaders get feedback?
We believe in the power of regular, high quality practice and feedback. Leaders will get live feedback in multiple ways:
- During “deliberate practice” opportunities taking place during the session
- 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 are your COVID-19 policies for in-person events?
We are committed to the health and safety of our participants and staff. Relay GSE strongly recommends that all participants are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes receiving booster shots as soon as participants are eligible. Relay encourages participants to comply with all employer-mandated vaccine requirements.
When will the summer intensive schedule be published?
We will publish the detailed schedule of sessions for the summer intensives by March 15th.
