LEAD University 2016, the network's annual professional development, orientation and team building program held each July, officially kicked off with "New to LEAD" at Brick Church this week.

There, more than 50 new staff members are learning about the LEAD mission, culture and family -- and, above all else, expectations for our students, families and schools. We'll have more in-depth coverage later this week, but in the meantime, please visit our facebook page for a slew of pictures and updates from New to LEAD.
