FAU PPI (Principal Preparation Initiative)


A Message from PROPEL

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.
