2017 Leadership Intensive: Application Open Now

Published February 03, 2017 08:00

The Charter Schools Leadership Intensive is a four-day "boot camp" designed to provide California charter school leaders with in-depth trainings on the key areas of successful charter school management, including data and accountability, finance, leadership, charter school law and legal issues, special education, governance and more.

The Intensive is the latest iteration of CSDC’s long-time summer program, the Charter Schools Leadership Institute. The Intensive condenses the Institute’s 6-day schedule into a compact 4-day format and shifts the venue to a convenient location in order to increase the accessibility of the event while still offering a highly informative and highly engaging training program. 

Who Attends?

The Leadership Intensive is designed for and targeted at new and experienced California charter school principals and other school leaders who have direct responsibility for overseeing and managing a broad range of responsibilities at their schools, specifically:
• newly hired administrators, especially those new to California charter schools,
• teachers recently promoted to leadership roles, and
• staff of newly authorized schools.

What Will You Learn?

The Leadership Intensive features a range of in-depth sessions, guest speakers, case studies, and group activities that address a broad range of key charter school leadership concepts and skills. The pace of the Intensive is fast, intense, and engaging.
