Academy Cohorts III and IV are Underway

The HPU Leadership Academy began its third cohort in the fall of 2018 and is excited to begin work with its fourth cohort in January 2019. Cohort III has 17 candidates representing  partnering districts which include Alamance-Burlington Schools, Asheboro City Schools, Cabarrus County Schools, Elkin City Schools, Mount Airy City Schools, Newton-Conover City Schools, Lincoln County Schools, Vance County Schools, Winston-Salem/Forsyth Schools, and Yadkin County Schools.

The seventeen candidates came together for the first time on August 1 for a day long orientation.  During this orientation, they were provided with expectations, guidelines, fun activities, and a campus tour. They were also able to meet and discuss the program with members from cohort I & II of the HPULA. What a great group! We look forward to working with them on this journey!

Cohort IV has 16 candidates who will represent  partnering districts which include Asheboro City Schools, Davie County Schools, Guilford County Schools, Lincoln County Schools and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. They will come together for the first time on January 11, 2019 for an extensive orientation reflective of cohort III’s orientation.
