The San Francisco and New Orleans-Santa Fe Districts recently launched a two-year program (2010-2012) for future Lasallian leaders. The Discerning Leaders Program is intended to help selected educators discern their talent, interest, and aptitude to serve as principals or presidents in secondary schools of the Districts and beyond.
The two main elements of the Discerning Leaders Program are face-to-face gatherings and mentoring. The program will include formal presentations and informal exchanges with experienced educators at various school sites, readings, and time for prayerful reflection. The mentoring program will take place at the participant’s home institution with the school’s president or principal serving as mentor.
