The Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is the nationally recognized leadership development program sponsored by the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) and managed in CT by Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES). 

EPFP is a ten-month learning experience for professionals with strong leadership abilities and a concern for issues important to children and education.  Participants work full-time in K-12 public school districts, universities, RESCs and non-profits. Applicants are also accepted from business, municipal and state government, and boards of education. Fellows are typically endorsed and supported by their employer.

As a result, sponsoring school districts and organizations are rewarded with better-informed and more skillful employees equipped to enact positive change on behalf of students and families.


2017-2018 FOCUS: LEADING FOR EQUITY

Because issues addressing special education and English Learners (ELs) currently occupy a prominent place in CT education policy, the 2017-2018 EPFP experience will provide fellows with opportunities to network with thought leaders and influencers in these areas in order to further understand the issues, learn to advocate for and influence policy-making, and understand how related policy - existing and proposed - impacts districts, schools, and students and their families.
