62. Missouri Leadership Development System (MoLDS) 2nd

Program: RPDC - Southeast

Location: SE RPDC-SE MO State Univ.-Cape Girardeau (Cape Girardeau, MO)

Dates: 11/15/2016

As a new principal or assistant, we know you will be faced with a whole new set of challenges as you work through the upcoming year. Our hope is that as a new administrator you will receive all the support that is necessary to help you face the challenges of your new position.

With that in mind, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is rolling out a new Missouri Leadership Development System (MoLDS) program for the 2016-2017 school year. As you may be aware, one of the necessary components required by the state of Missouri is a two year mentoring program for new site level administrators. The new MoLDS program will meet this requirement, but it will be much more than that. The new program will focus on the work of emerging leaders and their work in five key areas of leadership: visionary, instructional, managerial, relational, and innovative. The work of this program will examine thirty-two competencies in these areas of leadership.

The MoLDS program will include three regional meetings, learning labs, mentor/coach work, and online events in its first year. These events will be facilitated by the Southeast Missouri State University Regional Professional Development Center. We believe that completion of this program will be tied to further certification as an administrator.
