About Us

In 2015, the Special Education Leader Fellowship was created to meet the need for high-quality special educational programming in schools. Our 2-year Fellowship develops special education and RTI leaders, aspiring leaders, and their principals to create high-impact programs for students with learning exceptionalities.

Our Mission

We empower schools to be welcoming and effective communities for ALL students by developing the capacity of stakeholders through coaching, guidance in systems development, and collaborative trainings.

Our Approach

To ensure students with exceptionalities reach their potential, we develop special education leaders to build:

  • A shared belief in the potential of all young people
  • Partnerships with colleagues, external organizations, and parents; and
  • Personal responsibility for student success.
