Principal Rapid Orientation and Preparation in Educational Leadership (PROPEL) Program

State Approved Partnership Program

PROPEL is a state approved masters program in Educational Leadership. In addition to completing a masters you will also earn the Florida Professional Educators' Certificate upon successfully passing the Florida Educational Leadership Exam (FELE).

All in One

PROPEL is an accelerated program that folds in the BCPS LEAD (Leaders Experiences and Administrative Development) program for aspiring school leaders all in one program. Additionally, in our cohort model, students will progress through courses sequentially over 22 months. Once you complete PROPEL you are automatically placed in the Assistant Principal talent pool that allows you to apply for a position immediately following graduation.

Create A Professional Network Along the Way

PROPEL courses are taught by seasoned leaders within BCPS who have a doctorate degree in the field of educational leadership. Additionally, students in PROPEL are mentored by their school principals who support them throughout their course work and internship activities. This design allows students to develop professional relationships with leaders across the district.

We Understand Your Schedule

Courses occur twice a week: one evening during the week and Saturday.
