The Associate Partner will also work with the Leadership Programs team to influence content and lead sessions for professional learning engagements such as our National Principal Academy Fellowship/National Principal Supervisor Academy and other instructional leadership programs. Finally, this role will join a dynamic and growing Leadership Programs team at Relay, and as such, have the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from a strong set of experts in the work of school leader development.
