New Leaders’ EPIC program (Effective Practice Incentive Community) is designed to identify and share best practices across a consortium of high-performing charter schools nationally, providing a unique opportunity for top-quality educators to learn from their peers. Conceived in 2006 by New Leaders, EPIC is funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Education's Teacher incentive Fund Program. For more information, visit www.newleaders.org.
