Fayetteville, N.C. – To help prepare principals to lead high-poverty and historically low-performing schools, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) has joined forces with North Carolina State University’s Educational Leadership Academy (NELA).
 
NELA works with school districts across the state to create comprehensive leadership development and succession plans for schools. This new partnership will enable aspiring school leaders to participate in a distance education cohort and earn a Master of School Administration degree from NC State.
 
Members of the cohort will receive an all-expenses-paid scholarship loan, which will be forgiven as long as they commit to work as a principal in North Carolina for four years. In addition, these graduate students will engage in powerful leadership learning experiences in NC State’s experiential and award-winning program.
 
“NC State’s Master of School Administration program is innovative, effective and well-known for developing principals to lead high-need schools,” said Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr., superintendent of CCS. “This partnership will prepare transformational school leaders to assume leadership roles in our district.”
 
For more information about NELA, visit go.ncsu.edu/principalprep.
