Leaders Professional Learning Program

SAM LPLP 2017-18

The Leaders Professional Learning Program (LPLP) provides a unique and innovative approach to professional learning for Montana school leaders by offering an opportunity for participants to receive student-focused, solution-based professional development designed to be responsive to the challenges and issues administrators face each day.  Connecting administrators throughout the state, LPLP’s multi-faceted blended learning approach consists of a rich online resource center; collegial cohorts that meet both virtually and face-to-face allowing participants to share challenges, successes, and thought leadership with like-minded Montana leaders experiencing similar job roles, situations, and context; and personal learning networks, including one-on-one coaching/mentoring with experienced Providers.  With a goal of providing professional development to 50 new and experienced Montana administrators each year, the LPLP delivery system will inspire many educators and leaders to understand contemporary, research-based initiatives and successful educational leadership strategies to positively impact the education of thousands of students across Montana.
