Principal Pipeline

  • Equity-Centered Pipeline Initiative

    About the Grant

    The Wallace Foundation recently awarded Columbus City Schools an $8.2 million multi-year grant. The Equity-Centered Pipeline Initiative (ECPI) supports our district in developing and supporting a pipeline for highly effective school leaders while addressing equity-centered practices that directly impact student achievement.

    Current and future principals will benefit from professional learning focusing on developing equity- centered school leaders to benefit all students.

    Key Impacts

    Columbus City Schools aims to create comprehensive, aligned principal pipelines that can develop and support equity-centered leaders within the district ecosystem. 

    This work will be carried out in alignment with our Portrait of a Graduate and our Strategic Plan Priority 3: Strong Learning Communities in Every Region: CCS will strengthen a high-quality, interdependent set of learning communities so that within and among these centers of growth are reliable sources of support, identity, and hope.

    Key impacts for...

    STUDENTS: Foster a learning community of equitable practices so that all students intentionally experience learning outcomes where their voice is elevated.

    DISTRICT LEADERS: Elevate support structures throughout the system led by the Office of Transformation and Leadership and the Office of Equity to support equity-focused leaders.

    PRINCIPALS: Empower principals as equity-focused leaders to implement the district’s strategic plan including community-engaged vision and commitment to equity.

    GRANT PARTNERS: Leverage lessons learned through this initiative to influence leadership policy, credentialing, and/or standards development.
