Leadership Fellowships

Fellowships and Networks for Outstanding Educators

 

America Achieves offers fellowships and
networks that tap into and build upon the creativity and expertise of some of America's
most successful and promising educators: teachers, principals, superintendents, and rising leaders.  These fellowship programs are aimed at providing leaders with a platform
for sharing best practices, developing resources and tools, designing systems
for scaling effective school leadership, and giving voice to outstanding
leaders in the national debate on education and policy.

Population(s) Served

America Achieves disseminates tools that communicate and
generate support for the high expectations all students deserve as well as the support
they need to get and stay on track for success. These resources have been identified
by leaders in the field as gaps in their tool kits that have been impediments
to success.  Examples of tools:

 Common Core web site:  America Achieves has
produced a robust online resource offering video modules to help teachers
prepare to transition to the Common Core. To view this on-line
tool, go to: https://commoncore.americaachieves.org(https://commoncore.americaachieves.org/) .

Tools for designing performance-based principal evaluation systems: America Achieves is working with experts in the field to facilitate
the development of cutting-edge tools and resources that states and districts can
use to evaluate the effectiveness of principals in producing outstanding outcomes
for America’s youth.

Population(s) Served

Through its Results for America initiative, America Achieves develops recommendations and bipartisan
support for investing public funds in evidence-based solutions that can be
taken to large scale.

Results for America aims to improve outcomes
for young people and their families by helping drive public resources more
efficiently toward results-oriented solutions.  Results for America works to ensure taxpayer dollars are invested with a rigorous focus on data and
proven outcomes and discourage continued support of programs that consistently
fail to have positive impact.

Specifically, Results for America:

·        
Develops new ideas to
underscore government's role as an investor in and catalyst for data-driven, evidence-based
solutions to improve outcomes for youth. This work focuses on education,
workforce development, and family well-being;

·        
Encourages federal, state and
local governments to adopt tools to drive public resources toward what works;
and

·        
Develops a bipartisan
constituency and active champions for this approach among government leaders,
and communicate powerful success stories across all levels of government.
