I sent out the applications last week. Last year, we had 37 interested applicants. Not bad for the first year. With word of mouth and encouragement from all levels throughout the system, we are expecting a larger pool this year.
The process will be the same as last year. Interested staff must complete the application, and be sure to submit with a letter of recommendation attesting to his/her leadership potential. This letter may come from someone outside the system.
After the applications have been screened, a group of interviewers will be selected. The pool will be narrowed to 20. These finalists will be interviewed individually to determine suitability for the program. Ultimately, the 12 members of the class of 2007 will be selected from the process.
So, if you are interested, please go ahead and complete the application. You can download a copy by following this link:
