     "EPFP is a truly unique professional experience.  It features outstanding guest speakers and
    stimulating discussions about the policies that shape education.  The information and insights gained are extraordinary and are directly related to the challenges educators experience every day." 
    ~ Robert Feirsen, Superintendent, Garden City UFSD

    Part of a national program, the New York Metro EPFP is a unique, professional development experience that focuses on education policy issues and strategic leadership development for local school board members, superintendents, key administrators and other education leaders. NY EPFP Fellows meet at Teachers College in NYC for six full-day sessions throughout the school year. These discussion sessions include renowned guest speakers on issues related to national & state school reform and how they are influencing change and accountability at the local school district level. Fellows also attend two exceptional programs: the Washington Policy Seminar in DC in April and an optional Regional Leadership Forum  in October at the Gettysburg Battlefield and the U.S. Army War College. The number of Fellows in each cohort is limited, and applications are accepted in the spring.
