Applications Open For Next Class of E3 Fellows

October 26, 2020

“Our society,” said Nicole Saulny, the Head of Esperanza Charter Schools, “is as strong as its education system. That is what we are trying to build—the educational system of this great city that we live in.”

For the past year, Saulny and eight of her fellow school and single-site charter management organization leaders from across New Orleans have been building it together.

As the first class of New Schools for New Orleans’ Executive Education Experience (E3) Fellows, these educators have gathered to share best practices and prepare for roles in executive leadership in our city’s charter networks. They received individual coaching, core sessions with national education leaders, and a four-day retreat. Their fellowship will continue this year, and include a national site visit, if health conditions allow.

Now, the E3 Fellowship is seeking the next class of Fellows. We are seeking passionate, diverse leaders. Particularly, the E3 Fellowship has a strong commitment to recruit and develop leaders of color.

Applicants must: 

If selected, fellows will receive two years of fellowship coaching, collaboration, and learning. The fellowship is highly selective; this year, we expect to choose eight to ten leaders.

Fellows will apply their experiences and expertise to learning to lead our city’s charter organizations. They’ll commit to participating in:

The E3 team conducted national research to discover what makes a strong charter executive. By engaging in these activities, fellows will develop the skills and strengths they need to be those powerful leaders.

We look forward to welcoming the next set of New Orleans’ charter network leaders, who will help us build the stronger society we all envision.
