Leadership Institute for School Principals
Research has shown that effective leaders have a positive impact on student and school performance, but Kentucky’s principals have limited opportunities to receive the high-end training that is of such great value to leaders in the business community. That is why the Kentucky Chamber Foundation started the Leadership Institute for School Principals – offering school leaders executive-level leadership training unmatched anywhere in the state.
We are excited to announce the LISP Class of 2017-2018!
Forty-eight Kentucky school principals will begin executive-level leadership training through our partnership with The BB&T Leadership Institute. Thanks to donations from individuals, businesses and communities, the program is free for principals. Participants in the Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Leadership Institute for School Principals will complete the program in the spring of 2018.
“The Leadership Institute is the best professional learning program that I have ever participated in. This course was about me and how I could be a better leader. I knew if I could be a better leader, I would be better able to handle my managerial and instructional duties as a principal and make an impact on my school.”
– Amy Swiney, Bevins Elementary (K-5) | Sidney, Kentucky
“I think it’s important to grow and learn no matter where you are in your career. At the time I started, I felt some staleness in my role and the institute offered me a chance to grow and make some changes.”
– Joe Wright, Gallatin Elmentary | Warsaw, Kentucky
