MDOE quotes Knowles about leadership development program

Paul Knowles, a lecturer in educational leadership with the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development, is quoted in a recent Maine Department of Education newsletter story about the first cohort of the Maine Leadership Development Program. The 18 education leaders in the cohort include superintendents, assistant superintendents, curriculum and instruction leaders, regional education leaders, Maine DOE staff, and other school- and district-level staff from seven Maine counties. The group will become certified trainers and facilitators of future leadership development cohorts with a goal “to build and strengthen instructional leadership skills among Maine’s educational leaders.” Knowles, who serves as UMaine’s liaison to the DOE initiative, is quoted saying he’s “impressed with the caliber, diversity, passion, and commitment of the leaders participating in Maine’s Leadership Development Program.”
