About CLASS: 

The first year of CLASS is designed to be a complete course in the principles of teacher leadership (the leadership of peers). Participants learn how to use data to develop goals through a collaborative leadership process. Based on credits earned and/or different roles in their schools, participants may qualify for salary differentials.

The second year deepens participants’ understanding of how to improve educational outcomes at a school level, including the design and administration of school systems. At the end of this year, successful candidates will receive a master’s degree from Hunter College and are qualified to take state exams for the New York State Building and District Leader Certification.

  • Possess current NYS teacher certification (initial or professional)
