Registration for 2016-17 NY Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is open & SPACE IS LIMITED!
"EPFP is a truly unique professional experience. It features outstanding guest speakers and
stimulating discussions about the policies that shape education. The information and insights gained are extraordinary and are directly related to the challenges educators experience every day."
~ Robert Feirsen, Superintendent, Garden City UFSD
Part of a national program, the New York Metro EPFP is a unique, professional development experience that focuses on education policy issues and strategic leadership development for local school board members, superintendents, key administrators and other education leaders. NY EPFP Fellows meet at Teachers College in NYC on six Fridays throughout the school year. These discussion sessions include guest speakers on issues related to national & state school reform and how they are influencing change and accountability at the local school district level. Fellows also attend two exceptional programs: the Washington Policy Seminar in DC in April 23-26, 2017 and an optional Regional Leadership Forum on October 6-7, 2016 at the Gettysburg Battlefield and the U.S. Army War College. The number of Fellows in each cohort is limited, and applications are accepted over the summer.
