Fred Foster, principal for the Forbes Road School District, was among 18 school administrators in the region who received a certificate for completing Leadership Essentials for Administrative Development of the Pennsyvlania Inspired Leadership Program. The award was presented on March 6, 2009.

This seven-day course focused on Pennsylvania's three core standards for school administrators: The leader has the knowledge and skills to think and plan strategically, creating an organizational vision around personalized student success; the leader is grounded in standards-based theory and design and is able to transfer knowledge to his/her job as the architect of standards based reform in the school; and the leader knows how to access and use appropriate data to inform decision making at all levels of the system.
