MSD Wayne Superintendent Selected for Fellowship Program

Dr. Jeff Butts, superintendent of the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, is part of the second cohort of the Fellowship for Public Education Leadership. The executive leadership program is run by The Broad Center at the Yale University School of Management.

The program is designed for senior-level public education leaders from across the country who are dedicated to strengthening public school systems and the communities they serve.

The current cohort includes 23 senior-level public education leaders from across the U.S. The fellows will gather four times over the next 10 months for weeklong modules at the Yale School of Management. The modules are designed to expose the fellows to leading management research and skills that can be applied to the public school systems in which they work.

The program also places an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning within the cohort and leading practitioners in the field. Fellows leverage these learnings as they drive transformative work within their school systems.
