Educational Leadership Institute (ELI)

Working with school districts in southwestern Pennsylvania, The Educational Leadership Institute (ELI) has established an infrastructure that supports sustainable academic achievement. ELI is a way of thinking and working that emphasizes shared leadership and a culture of collective responsibility for school districts. A coaching centered model, ELI provides comprehensive and integrated professional development built on a foundation of shared leaderhip anddesigned to support a culture focused on student learning. ELI’s philosophy of shared leadership is practiced through the work of “vertical” leadership teams comprised of teachers, the superintendent, principals, and central office personnel. These leadership teams focus on data-informed problem solving and decision-making to improve teaching and learning in the schools of the district.
