Metro RESA iLEAD Tier II Online Application

The Metro RESA iLEAD Tier II program is a partnership between your school district and Metro RESA to develop advanced leadership skills. The program is one year in length and requires a significant commitment of time.  However, the  iLEAD program is job-embedded and each candidate will complete their work within the framework of the Candidate Support Team.  The CST represents the partnership between the district and Metro RESA  iLEAD. The CST collaboratively develops an individual induction plan throughout the candidate’s year- long clinical practice.  The CST guides, supports and monitors candidate goals and program requirements.

Please read all the information below before beginning your application. It is recommended that you discuss the program with your site administrator before you begin the application process. The following four documents will assist you and your site administrator in learning more about our iLEAD program. 

During their program, Tier II candidates must submit and pass the Performance Assessment for School Leaders (PASL) state assessment to qualify for Tier II certification.
