How Do Charters Find Great Leaders?

The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (NAPCS) understands supporting the growing number of high-quality charter schools takes a huge commitment. It means finding and developing a great number of talented leaders. At NAPCS, we think we can help by sharing some of the promising practices in place at public charter schools across the country. “ASSESS, Coordinate, Execute: How to ACE an Executive Director Search” describes how you can find the next leader for your charter school and is the second publication in our year-long “Charter People” campaign to spotlight and address human capital issues in the charter movement.

We kicked off the campaign with an issue brief detailing how charter schools hire teachers. We hope these publications are useful to those of you working out in the field. We also want to hear from you. We want to know about your school, your job, your greatest successes, your biggest challenges and your ideas for how to improve public education. Help us by telling us about a great charter school leader you know. Post a message on our Facebook wall or send a tweet with the hashtag #charterpeople. We’ll continue to share what we learn.
