How Do Districts Engage with Leader in Me?

Districts can become a District Partner by purchasing the annual District Partnership. Districts may also wish to equip members of their staff to be District Coaches through the District Coach Certification & Development (C&D) program. 

What is a District Partnership?


District Alignment Coaching

  • An initial District Alignment Session during which a Leader in Me Coach seeks to understand the district’s goals and priorities and make connections to Leader in Me resources and services.
  • As a follow-up to the District Alignment Session, the coach will provide the school with an Annual District Alignment Plan which can be accessed on Leader in Me Online. This shapes the district’s engagement with Leader in Me for that school year.
  • The coach will also conduct online Coaching Sessions with district leaders throughout the school year to track progress against the Annual District Alignment Plan.
  • Leader to Leader sessions each year for district leaders. These sessions are designed specifically to foster growth as an executive-level leader in the field of education. This is a rare opportunity to deepen relationships with some of the best educators in the country.
