Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY has received a $1,250,000 grant for its graduate program in School Building Leadership from the New York City Department of Education’s Bureau of Nonpublic School Reimbursable Services (BNPS).
School Building Leadership teaches students how to be collaborative, principle-centered, life long learners. It includes traditional classroom instruction, experiential and collaborative learning, networking, workshops, conferences, action research, and technology. Students who complete this program are prepared to become school administrators, supervisors, professional educators, coordinators, etc.
Starting this fall, new and existing School Building Leadership students who meet the grant guidelines and are approved by the BNPS will receive free tuition. The total funds will be dispensed annually over five years.
The grant program serves nonpublic school principals and teachers who work in one of the five New York City boroughs and seek to advance their leadership skills and/or acquire New York State certification in school building leadership.
