JESSE IS A FELLOW IN THE WAKE PRINCIPAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The Wake Principal Leadership Program (WPLP) is a principal preparation program designed to train future leaders to serve in the Wake County Public School System. WPLP was modeled after the award winning NC State program, the Northeast Leadership Academy (NELA). NELA earned the honor of being named an Exemplary Educational Leadership Program by the University Council for Educational Administration. A grant from the state of NC through the North Carolina Alliance for School Leadership Development (NCASLD) funds WPLP, including full scholarships for WPLP's Fellows. WPLP Fellows will earn a NC school principal license and a Master of School Administration degree. To learn more about WPLP, visit the website by clicking on the button.
