Starting in September 2021, Perry Township Schools will kick off its Perry Township Leadership Academy.

The Academy is an engaging, eight-month learning experience for select Perry Township community leaders and school district parents to gain a deeper understanding of our school district.

This year, classes will be in-person, but there will be a virtual option to offer more flexibility for busy families.

Administrators will provide Academy participants with a transparent look into each area of running a district including academics, finance, operations, transportation, and more.

The Academy was designed with three goals in mind for participants:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of how Perry Township Schools function
  • Experience the engaging learning style that our educators use to teach students
  • Develop an understanding of how Perry Township Schools has created an award-winning culture of educational excellence that is recognized by national education experts

Academy participants will attend eight classes that will meet at 8 a.m. on one Tuesday of the month from September – April:

  • September 14
  • October 5
  • November 9
  • December 7
  • January 11
  • February 8
  • March 15
  • April 12

The first and last sessions will run approximately 90 minutes; the others will last approximately 1 hour. Each class will be held at one of our schools or district facilities. The locations will be announced in the coming months.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be celebrated during a special graduation ceremony. We invite Academy graduates to become passionate ambassadors who share our district’s vision with our community, as well as dialogue with district leaders about future projects
