The Wallace Foundation launched the four-year, $24 million Principal Supervisor
Initiative (PSI) to determine whether it was possible to redefine principal supervision in six urban school districts. A joint research study
between Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College and Mathematica Policy Research of the initiative shows promising results.
The Wallace Foundation’s four-year, $48.5 million University Principal Preparation Initiative (UPPI) supports seven universities, their district and state partners, and mentor programs to redesign the universities’ principal preparation programs according to evidence-based principles and practices. A new study by RAND Corporation
shows strong results after the first year of implementation.
The Wallace Foundation released Sustaining A Principal Pipeline
by Policy Studies Associates. The report examines how six districts participating in Principal Pipeline Initiative (PPI) continued their work after funding expired.
