The goal of the Leadership Initiative is to provide professional development opportunities that assist leaders across educational disciplines in improving student achievement, including students with disabilities. Through a variety of interactive sessions with job-embedded, reflective opportunities, educational leaders engage with their peers to collaboratively examine relevant issues.
