Lead Learner

Professinal Learning Series

Learn. Lead. Succeed.

Learning Forward Louisiana (formerly Louisiana Staff Development Council) recognizes that leading in a school or district involves synchronizing and engaging many components and that effective leaders transform schools and districts through engaging in effective learning experiences. We have developed a year-long evidenced-based professional learning experience for today’s educational leader called Lead Learner.


With six (6) live sessions and fourteen (14) online activities from October 2014 to May 2015, Lead Learner participants will engage in over fifty hours of lifelong learning on impactful leadership. The overall goal of Lead Learner is to provide educational leaders the mindset, skillset and toolset to meet the standard of an effective or highly effective educational leader.
