a unique, compelling, inside-out approach to leadership development. The
principles taught in the work session are universal, timeless,

was specifically designed to not only help participants learn the 7
Habits, but to also use the processes and tools so they actually live
the 7 Habits on a daily basis, becoming more effective leaders.
“Our children deserve great schools, and great schools require great
leaders,” said Tom Gluck, PAIU Executive Director. “PAIU is proud to
work with FranklinCovey and Eduplanet21 to offer teachers and school
leaders a world-class leadership program through the convenience of an
online platform, and at a price that will create unprecedented access to
the 7 Habits 4.0 work sessions. This project is another great
example of Intermediate Units working to deliver education solutions for
students, schools and communities everywhere in the Commonwealth.”
In the summer of 2016, FranklinCovey received confirmation from the
Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) that the content in the 7
Habits 4.0 work session and in the Leader
in Me, a whole-school transformation process that teaches K-12
students leadership and life skills, had been approved as authorized Act
48 professional development curriculum. FranklinCovey will maintain
their authorized status until June of 2019.
48 requires state licensed educators to earn a certain amount of
professional development credits within a five-year period to maintain
their certification status. Those credits can be earned through a number
of avenues, including continued collegiate study, completion of PDE
professional education courses, 180 hours of continuing professional
education programs through a PDE approved provider, or any combination
of the above.
