Welcome to the Principal Rapid Orientation and Preparation in Educational
Leadership (PROPEL) Program. PROPEL was created to reform and streamline the
Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) and FAU’s school leadership preparation
programs with the outcome of creating a single, seamless, leadership preparation
continuum that results in successful completers earning dual certification in
Level I Educational Leadership and Level II School Principal certification.
PROPEL was created to prepare educational leaders with a focus on “turnaround”
school leadership and meeting the needs of the most challenging schools. PROPEL
serves to create a more sound future for public education and enhance
educational leadership development models. PROPEL’s school administrator
preparation program is cutting edge, based on the most current research, best
practices, and the evolving needs of individual schools and districts. The
project’s vision is, through an innovative model, to move schools and districts
into a new and successful era of public education that will promote the
foundational goals of creating a democratic society and citizenry while
addressing the learning needs of all students.
