    PA Inspired Leadership Program

    Pennsylvania Department of Education

    The Pennsylvania Inspired Leadership (PIL) Program is a statewide, standards-based continuing professional education program for school and system leaders. This comprehensive, cohort-based program is focused on developing the capacity of leaders to improve student achievement. The state offers two courses specific to prenatal through grade 3 (P-3).

    • Prenatal through Grade 3 (P3) Systems Leadership focuses on effective P–3 (prenatal–grade 3) planning and implementation. This coursework focuses on communication and effective strategies among all stakeholders in a P–3 system where the 0–5 and K–3 administrators lead in modeling the process. This course uses the National P-3 Center’s Framework as a guidance document.
    • Effective Learning Environments in P-3 Settings focuses on preparing administrators to support early childhood educators create the best outcomes for all learners. Administrators learn to recognize appropriate and effective instruction, how to navigate accountability requirements, how to support staff in using developmentally appropriate practices, and how to use P-3 alignment to improve student outcomes.

    Each blended course is 8 weeks in length, comprised of a combination of online discussions, study hours, job‐embedded actives, a one‐day face‐to‐face meeting, and online synchronous meetings. PIL is offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education in collaboration with Intermediate Units and other partners at regional sites.
