The 2015-2016 Lilead Fellows

The Lilead Project received IMLS grant funding in 2016 to support a second cohort of Lilead Fellows. The Lilead Fellows Program is an intensive professional development program for school district library supervisors. Like their predecessors, this second cohort will tackle challenging and pressing issues in their districts and work toward transformational change to support student success. UMD’s iSchool will partner with the Darden College of Education at Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA) to carry out the expanded program.
