September: PEN Leadership Institute
September 19-20, Ross Danis attended the second portion of the Public Education Network's Leadership Institute for leaders of Local Education Funds. As an LEF, we continute to work with our national network of peer organizations, as well as our parent organization, PEN, to share best practices and share and receive support in each other's work to ensure a high quality public education for all students.
About PEN Leadership Institute:
PEN is at an exciting stage as a network as it commits to rallyingaround unifying goals -- and holding itself accountable for impact. PEN's research on effectiveness in achieving measurable results with nationally recognized effects indicates key elements that make critical differences in accelarating both the growth and performance of LEFs.
Supporting growing and high capacity LEFs through a Leadership Institute with potential for measurable increase in impact has several benefits:
- Accelarate individual LEF impact
- Build upon the momentum of the strategic plan
- Create examples for other LEFs to learn from
We are excited to deepen our relationships within the Public Education Network of Local Education Funds so that we can all work together toward a high quality public education for all children. Stay tuned for more reports to come!
