Gregg Scott, principal of Woodmont Middle School and School Board Member Chuck Saylors have been selected among 22 professional and civic leaders from across the state to participate in the SC Education Policy Fellowship Program (SC-EPFP) for 2015-16.
SC-EPFP is a 10-month intensive professional development program for established and emerging leaders in education and related fields to help them in working toward sound education policy and practice in South Carolina. SC-EPFP Fellows participate in a variety of activities that promote leadership, develop professional networks, demystify education policy, and foster a greater understanding of the roles of government and the community.
Fellows will meet monthly throughout the academic year for full-day dialogues, exercises and group projects, in addition to a Fall Leadership Forum and a four-day Washington Policy Seminar hosted by the Institute for Educational Leadership.
The SC-EPFP operates under the auspices of the national Education Policy Fellowship Program of the Institute for Educational Leadership in Washington, DC, which oversees Fellowship programs in 16 states and the District of Columbia. South Carolina’s is coordinated by the SC School Improvement Council, located in the University of South Carolina College of Education, with the assistance of the SC Department of Education’s Office of School Leadership.
SC-EPFP is supported by an advisory board providing cross-disciplinary leadership representing the state’s K-12 education, higher education and business communities.
