The application consists of two parts. Part 1 is the official application and is to be completed by the principal. Part 2 is the nomination form and is completed by the superintendent/district-level supervisor. The steps for applying are as follows:

  • Principal completes Part 1 of the electronic application. After verifying all information is complete, the principal will “submit” the application;
  • The Superintendent/District-level supervisor will immediately receive an email with directions to complete Part 2 — the nomination form. If he/she does not receive the email immediately, please have them check the Spam or Junk Mail folder. The Superintendent completes and then “submits.”

All applications are due by March 16, 2020.  Selection of principals for the 2020-2022 cohort will be made by March 31, 2020, and both the superintendent/district-level supervisor and the principal will be notified electronically.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Lori Davis at [email protected] or 812-237-2932.

Due to the intensive nature of IPLI, participants are required to attend all IPLI Seminars and regional focus-cohort meetings. Before applying, principals should confirm that they can attend ALL seminars. Regional focus-cohort meetings will be determined during the Summer Seminar with their mentors.***** Dates are listed on page 7 of the Information Packet.
