Chavez Community School Transforms Culture Through Leadership, Instruction [Video]

In 2012, Chavez Community School began implementing the Rewarding Excellence in Instruction and Leadership, The Next Generation (REIL-TNG) program. REIL-TNG is a five-year program funded by a U.S. Department of Education Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant that aims to attract, place, develop, and retain effective educators.

Embedded into the work and in support of her school's REIL-TNG initiative work, Principal Ivette Rodriguez Marquez explains the school community's decision to implement the Leader In Me program to achieve a positive school culture.
