Aspiring Leaders Program

The Aspiring Leaders Program is an internship opportunity for Lansing School District teachers and principals to grow their skills as they aspire to the next level of leadership. Aspiring Leaders engage in leadership training with our partners at Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA), Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP), and Michigan State University Offices of K-12 Outreach and Teacher Education.

Program Goals

  • Increase pool of internally qualified candidates for principal and central office leadership positions.
  • Develop transformational leaders that are capable of utilizing district resources and systems.
