National Institute for Magnet School Leadership (NIMSL)
The National Institute for Magnet School Leadership (NIMSL) is a new initiative at Magnet Schools of America. NIMSL's mission is to develop a new vision for professional development for current and aspiring magnet school leaders, develop a “Blue Ribbon” panel of leaders to advise MSA in the development of the essentials necessary to make NIMSL an integral entity within Magnet Schools of America.
NIMSL has trained over 200 principals, has assisted in developing State and/or Regional Associations as affiliates of Magnet Schools of America, and currently provides technical assistance to local school districts through on-site leadership training, evaluation of magnet school programs as well as reviews of policies and procedures relating to theme selection, marketing and student assignment.
To learn more about NIMSL services, please contact the Director of Organizational Leadership & Development, Ms. Crystal Moore at Crystal.Moore@Magnet.edu or (202) 824-0672.
