Teacher Leader Pilot OverviewThe 2016-2017 Delaware Teacher Leader Pilot will introduce five newly-designed teacher leader roles with diverse responsibilities into a group of schools across the state. DOE invites schools across the state to apply to participate by April 22. Schools representing each county, level and specialized school type will be selected by April 29 on the strength of their applications. The pilot will run for one year (May 2016 – June 2017), and schools selected to join will receive support throughout the spring, summer and the next school year to introduce these new roles into their schools.
The pilot will serve as an opportunity for the state to learn from the experiences of pilot leaders and schools and inform a potential full-scale implementation in the future. Pilot schools will play an integral role in offering feedback around successes, challenges and how teacher leadership can benefit educators and students. In order to provide a world class education for Delaware’s students, we must support, develop, and draw upon the expertise of Delaware’s most talented educators, making Delaware’s schools great places to both teach and learn.Use the navigation on the left to learn more about the Teacher Leader Pilot.The 2016-2017 Teacher Leader Pilot Application has now closed.
