About the New York State Career Ladder Pathway Local Education Agency Profiles
The Office of Teacher/Principal Quality & Professional Development is excited to share unique teacher and principal career ladder pathway models developed and implemented by Strengthening Teacher and Leader Effectiveness (STLE) grantees, including the STLE Advisory Board and other Local Education Agencies (LEAs) with promising practice. They were created as part of an effort to celebrate, promote, and sustain career ladder pathways statewide.
At the start of the 2014-15 school year, the Department assembled a STLE Advisory Board, comprised of 13 superintendents and members of their leadership teams from LEAs that represent the geographic and demographic diversity of New York State (NYS). STLE Advisory Board members were asked to collaborate with, and present to other stakeholder groups on the development of career ladder pathways, submit concrete tools and resources, develop profiles for inclusion in the Department’s guidance, provide feedback and input on draft materials to inform the state’s direction, and potentially serve as model LEAs for NYS educators.
