School Improvement Fellows

School Improvement Fellows are public school educators who undergo training in the methods and approaches behind Eskolta’s successful facilitation of school change efforts. Talented educators engage in a series of training sessions in which they explore research and strategies rooted in participant-driven improvement processes and apply them to related efforts they are involved with in their own school settings. Through these programs, Eskolta helps equip educators with the tools and knowledge they need to become leaders of sustainable school change.

Now Accepting Applications for the 2019-20 Eskolta Fellows Program!

Who is eligible to apply?

Ideal candidates are:

  • Currently working in a New York City public school
  • Teachers, counselors, department heads, instructional coaches, assistant principals or other educators who have experience facilitating adult learning
  • Familiar with the methods of improvement science and action research used by Eskolta to support school improvement
  • Eager to learn and implement approaches to facilitate school improvement


What does the program entail?

The program involves a series of eight after-school and one Saturday session on school improvement methodologies at the Eskolta offices in lower Manhattan. Fellows will explore current research, share practices, and study methods of school improvement through the lens of an important educational problem: Re-engaging adolescent learners who have experienced repeated setbacks and failures. Fellows will then have a chance to design, test, and adapt strategies to make systemic improvements in their own schools while measuring the effectiveness of those improvements.
