• The Integrated Leadership Principal Preparation Program - ILP3 is a State Board of Educator Certification approved alternative route to Principal as Instructional Leader certification.  Our program is designed to help certified educators who hold a master's degree transition into the role of a campus leader. ILP3 provides candidates with the necessary skills and knowledge to become a successful instructional leader. Our delivery of services are convenient, allowing candidates to complete coursework on Saturdays and participate in field experiences while continuing to work.  We have a long history of certifying principals across eight counties of the Rio Grande Valley.  Together with our partnering districts, we look forward to helping our candidates transition into a leadership role!
