What You Get

Kansas City PLUS residents graduate with the skills and resources to jumpstart a successful career leading a Kansas City school—and join a supportive network of like-minded leaders from across the city. 

As a PLUS resident, you’ll get: 

Hands-on Practice

In summer institute and then during the school year, get real experience helping a team of teachers improve their instruction, with support from a leadership coach. During the school year, our residents receive a full salary and benefits from the schools where they work. 

Personalized Coaching and Training

In bi-weekly coaching visits, your leadership coach will help you work toward personal leadership goals and build a deep understanding of your school and the surrounding community. We’ll also work with you to tailor a coaching and development plan—including monthly professional development sessions—that fits your leadership experience and the context of the school where you work. 

Support From a Mentor Principal

We partner with Kansas City schools who are committed to providing their residents with the best possible training and support. As part of this commitment, mentor principals in our schools will receive training on how to best support your development as a leader, and more broadly, foster a strong culture of leadership development.

Principal Certification and a Master’s Degree

Demonstrate success with your teachers and students, complete coursework, and pass required exams to earn principal certification and a Master of Arts in Educational Administration at the end of your second year.

A Community of Leaders

Tap into a diverse network of fellow PLUS residents who will challenge you to grow and support you along the way.

We're looking for the next 25 transformational school leaders in Kansas City.
