The Louisiana Early Leaders Academy is a ten-month, competitive program designed to build the instructional leadership skills of directors of Type III centers. Fellows collaborate and learn from and with their peers through in-person sessions, job-embedded coaching, and online communities of practice meetings. By the end of the fellowship, leaders have developed new skills, networks, and energy for the important work ahead.
