School leaders are at the forefront of change and progress in education in Detroit. It can be a daunting and sometimes lonely place to be. Excellent Schools Detroit connects with school leaders in several ways.
Community and school leaders
We bring community to the table as supporters of high quality education and we train community to observe school culture as part of our annual school review process.
School review process
We reach out to school leaders each year to ask them to opt-in to ESD’s annual school review. School leader participation ensures that their schools are visited by community and take part in the Detroit 5Essentials survey.
Innovation and connections
We listen to what school leaders need and to what they’re observing and we translate this knowledge into connections between leaders and others doing work in education. We also strive to create opportunities for school leaders to network with each other.
