School Nutrition Leadership Academy

Welcome to the North Carolina Department of Public Instructions School Nutrition Administrator Leadership Academy! Our goal is to grow self-confident and high achieving School Nutrition Administrators in a nurturing teaching environment which encourages collaboration and continuous professional development.

The Leadership Academy is designed to provide on-going continuing education in areas critical to the administration and operation of high quality School Nutrition Programs. The courses and workshops will include subject areas such as Food Production and Operations Management, Food Safety, Leadership Development, Marketing, New Administrator Orientation, Nutrition, Procurement, Program Accountability and Resource/Financial Management. 

Courses are planned for a variety of topics each year and will be offered on a rotating schedule with many subject areas being explored in greater depth in subsequent workshops. We are excited about sharing our School Nutrition Leadership Academy learning opportunities!
