The Science Leadership School Partners Program includes a comprehensive school support package. Teacher Leader facilitation, administrator contribution and cross-disciplinary school team cohesion is needed to actively engage and commit to the process and the time it requires.
Supports and benefits include:
Teacher Leaders enhance their career opportunities and receive a $2,500 stipend for the anticipated 40 hours of work they spend at their school and at work sessions at MSI.
A cohort of Teacher Leaders spend time together in work sessions at MSI planning, troubleshooting and supporting one another.
A cohort of administrators support each other as they lead science initiatives at the whole-school level.
School Partners can reapply and receive supports for up to three consecutive years, including access to the digital database that houses the School Support Tool and manages each school’s information.
