About Us

In fall 2015, Teach For America – Delaware launched Lead For Delaware, a two-year alternate route to principal certification trains educators to lead schools serving low-income communities and aims to support them in their journey to become the next generation of leaders for Delaware students. Lead For Delaware is open to applicants with at least three years of teaching experience, a Master’s degree, a strong academic record, evidence of effective teaching, and a commitment to leadership in Delaware. The first cohort of Lead For Delaware leaders completed their training in June 2017 and one hundred percent have been offered jobs as principals of Delaware schools in the 2017-2018 school year.
