It's Time to Make Summer P.D. Plans

Published February 20, 2015 15:14

As we turn the corner into the second half of the school year, now is a great time to start thinking about how you will use your summer to not only support your school, but also further your own personal and professional goals.

Your Needs

If you’re anything like the typical charter school leader, you’re likely overworked and under-resourced, preventing you from devoting sustained attention to

  • staying up-to-date on the latest fiscal and policy developments,
  • honing and refining your leadership skills, including fostering your relationships with your staff and board, and
  • meeting new colleagues who can share their experiences and insights.

Why the Leadership Institute?

Now entering its 17th year, CSDC’s summer Leadership Institute (often referred to as the “Boot Camp”) has been the place for charter school leaders to learn, recharge, and reinvigorate for the school year ahead.

Why should you attend?

We host the Institute in a beautiful setting.

The 2015 Leadership Institute will be located at the historic Marconi Conference Center, a rustic coastal retreat located on the serene Tomales Bay, approximately 50 miles north of San Francisco.

We provide you with timely trainings.

CSDC staff and invited experts provide you with comprehensive trainings on the essential charter topics, like accountability, renewal, legal issues, special education, collective bargaining, personnel, authorizer relationships, governance, finance, facilities, and more.

We connect you with a small cadre of sharp and promising charter leaders.

The strength of networking alone might well justify your attendance at this year’s program. When else might you spend a week getting to know and learning from 50 of the state’s most promising charter school leaders?

And we do this all at a fraction of the actual cost

Thanks to generous philanthropic support, CSDC is able to offer this professional development opportunity at a fraction of the actual cost.

Will you take the next step?

This year's Leadership Institute will take place between Sunday, June 21 and Friday, June 26 at the Marconi Conference Center in Marshall, CA.

To become eligible for admission, please submit an application, which only takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.

Please note that the priority application deadline closes on March 31, 2015. The final application deadline is May 15, 2015.

We look forward to reviewing your application!
