that place their trained people in district organizations. I found this article about the Los Angeles district.

http://www.broadresidency.org/residents/13... |residents/alumni|residents/alumni.html

"n September 2009, Parker Hudnut was appointed as the executive director of innovation and charter division for Los Angeles Unified School District. Previously, he served as the chief operating officer at the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools, a nonprofit charter management organization creating a network of high-performing charter schools in Los Angeles. Previously, Hudnut was the director of development at Chancellor Beacon Academies (now Imagine Schools), leading the expansion of charter schools in Arizona, New York, Michigan and Florida"

I found that interesting, since LA is a leader in turning their public schools over to charter management.

I looked up the Broad Residency.

http://www.broadresidency.org/about/overvi...

There is big money behind these schools.

"In school districts, Broad Residents report directly to the superintendent or a top cabinet member. In CMOs, Residents report directly to the CEO or chief operating officer. Residents are often tasked with leading major projects like opening new schools, leading budgeting processes, increasing operational efficiencies or improving human resources. Residents earn starting annual salaries of $85,000 to $95,000 and participate in a series of professional development sessions over the course of two years. At the conclusion of the two-year program, The Broad Residency expects that school districts and CMOs will hire Residents permanently in their current positions or promote them into more senior leadership posts.

Now in its eighth year, The Broad Residency has placed more than 173 Residents in more than 50 urban school districts and CMOs nationwide. Ninety-three percent of Broad Residency alumni still work in education and continue to positively impact student achievement as leaders in the education industry."

Interesting.
