School Empowerment Network leverages the power of transformational school leadership to reset and restart struggling schools.

Our team of former principals and district leaders previously oversaw the launch of 121 new schools in New York City, part of an initiative that MDRC found successfully increased outcomes for students of color. Today, we share that expertise across the country.

Compared to any other leadership program that I’ve done, they have by far been the ones that have helped me grow the most.
— Matt Mangan, Founding SLC Leader at Denby High School
