Naming of Schools
55. Naming of North Area Training Center


Motions:
I recommend that the School Board approve the naming of the North Area Training Center located north of the Howell Watkins Middle School campus to be the "Mary and Robert Pew Leadership Development Center." Since 1998 Mary and Robert Pew have been deeply involved with the leadership development for our principals and administrators. The Pew Foundation has sponsored principals and administrators to attend Harvard University Summer Leadership Institutes and have contributed funds for many other leadership development activities, to include the Principal Academies, the Leadership Summits each year, and have purchased multiple books for principals and administrators to increase the knowledge base of our senior leaders. Professional Development is a key element in the retention and successional planning for our schools' principals. The Pew Foundation has been instrumental in making it possible to offer state of the art instruction for our administrators as they progress through the ranks from teachers to assistant principals to the roles of both principals and directors. In addition to the administrative support, the professional development opportunities, also sponsored by the philanthropy of Mary and Robert Pew for teachers and school staffs include Breakthrough to Literacy Single School Culture for Academics and Efficacy Initiatives Columbia University Teachers' College, Readers and Writers Workshops Community Arts Pilot Programs at three schools Over the past ten years the Mary and Robert Pew Foundation has invested over $13,000,000.00 in support of professional development and capacity building for our administrators and teachers.- PASS
