2016 Leadership Institute: Application closes Friday night.

Published May 12, 2016 09:48

The application window for this year's California Charter Schools Leadership Institute closes at midnight tomorrow, Friday, May 13. Set aside 20-30 minutes today to submit your application and find out whether you will be joining us and dozens of fellow California charter school leaders on June 19-24, 2016 at the scenic Marconi Conference Center in Marshall, a small town located on the Tomales Bay about 60 miles north of San Francisco.

Are you the right fit?

While the Leadership Institute is intended for California charter school personnel with significant management responsibilities, we know from previous participants that the Institute is especially beneficial to those schools for which the following apply:

Your school is new.
New schools face a unique set of challenges. The Institute will help your new school avoid huge personnel missteps, establish a collegial yet professional school culture, foster a strong working relationship with your governing board, and successfully implement the terms of your charter.

You are a new administrator—or you have a new administrator working for you.
Many California charter school leaders send their newly hired leadership personnel to receive “crash course” training on the numerous core competencies required of successful school leaders.  Our program is designed specifically for California charter school leaders—so leaders coming from out-of-state, private, and traditional public schools (or from other professional backgrounds) will receive the customized training they need to successfully lead their schools.

You are an experienced school leader but you want to keep pace with the many interrelated changes affecting charter schools.
Veteran school leaders also have much to gain from the Institute, particularly because the weeklong program contains a number of in-depth trainings on a variety of complicated, interrelated charter topics, such as charter school finance, accountability, and renewal.

Is your P.D. budget limited?

Thanks to generous philanthropic support, the program fee for this year's Institute is only $895 per person—which includes tuition, materials, all meals, and five nights of double occupancy (same sex) lodging at the Marconi Conference Center. (Participants pay the cost of their transportation to-and-from the conference center, as well as any incidentals.)

You would be hard-pressed to find another charter school training program that is as comprehensive—or as affordable—as the weeklong Institute.

It's a long wait until the 2017 program: Apply now before the 2016 window closes tomorrow (Friday) night.

The final application deadline for this year's program is Friday, May 13, 2016.
