Faculty Members Complete GLISI Leadership Program

Select leaders and aspiring leaders from Bibb County participated in a leadership development program sponsored by the Georgia Leadership Institute for School Improvement, also known as GLISI.

GLISI helps districts to find, grow and keep great leaders, who in turn grow and keep great teachers, in schools and in the district. GLISI's leadership development programs are designed to support a leader’s growth at all points along the leadership career continuum. The programs are performance-based. GLISI believes that the ability to think, write and talk about leadership is important; however, being able to put leadership skills into practice to achieve measurable results is more important.
