Pathways to Equity: Cohort 4 Application and Selection

The Los Angeles New Administrative Leadership Program (LANALP) is proud to launch its fourth leadership development cohort this Fall, comprised of 34 bold new administrators across the Los Angeles Unified School District who are committed to ensuring equity for all students through systemic school transformation. Our rigorous application and selection process was designed with intention, with a series of activities that prompted applicants to demonstrate how they think systemically and act strategically to advance student achievement and educational equity. During our three-part Candidate Selection Days, prospective candidates engaged in a small-group fishbowl discussion on Gloria Ladson-Billings’ 2006 address “From the Achievement Gap to the Education Debt: Understanding Achievement in U.S. Schools”, an on-demand writing exercise in response to Donovan Livingston’s HGSE Convocation Speech, and a one-on-one interview with an experienced fellow administrator. This last piece elevated the voice of the practitioner, particularly those leading transformational work at high-challenge schools, and distinguished this year’s selection process from all previous screenings. We hope and trust that this added rigor and intentionality will set our fourth and final cohort on a path toward greater equity and lasting impact.
