The School Leadership program is designed to assist high-need local educational agencies (LEAs) in the development, enhancement, or expansion of innovative programs to recruit, train, and retain principals (including assistant principals) through such activities as: giving financial incentives to aspiring new principals; offering stipends to principals who mentor new principals; carrying out professional development programs in instructional leadership and management; and giving incentives that are appropriate for teachers or individuals from other fields who want to become principals and that are effective in retaining new principals.
