What is the ITL Endorsement Program?

Omaha Public Schools and Concordia University are partnering to offer an endorsement program in Instructional Technology Leadership. Tuition and books will be fully funded for participants with a grant through the Sherwood Foundation. Initial target participants were OPS Librarians with a goal to evolve their role as leaders of technology integration. Librarians were offered the chance to apply, but we still have some spaces available. Our next target audience is district MIEs to build their leadership capacity. This grant funds a total of 30 participants.
