Leadership Excellence and Development
  • Leadership Excellence and Development (LEAD)


  • Host LEAD Beginning-of-Year (BOY) & Goal Setting Conversations by Oct 1

    Goal setting is an important part of our growth and performance cycle and is an opportunity for each school leader to connect their work directly to the LEAD Framework, DPS Strategic Roadmap, School Strategic Plan, Unified Improvement Plan, MLE Implementation Plan, and Black Excellence Plan. 

    What’s next?

    Note: Principals must have a LEAD MLE goal if they: 

    • did not receive an overall “Effective” MLE Program Implementation Rating and/or
    • did not receive an “Effective” MLE Program Effectiveness Rating
