Wordle-Teacher Credentialing (1).pngThe Administrator Induction Program is a two-year coaching program. The program is a CTCC-approved program for clearing the Professional Administrative Services Credential.

The Administrator Induction Program focuses on the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs). The two-year program is comprised of one-on-one coaching and 20 hours of professional growth seminars each year. The coach will be selected based upon the candidate's individual needs and will work with the candidate at his/her site for 3-4 hours each month throughout the two-year program.

Seminar topics include: Leadership in a Standards-Based System; Culture and Climate; Program Improvement; Fiscal Management, Budgeting & LCAP; Personnel Evaluation & Management; Schools & the Law; Management of the School; and Community Involvement & Politics, and Fierce Conversations.

COST: The cost of the two-year training program is $7200, payable over the course of the two years. Purchase orders and checks are accepted. Speak with your district to see if Title II professional development funds can be used to offset this cost.
