Inspiring and leading innovation in education


Aspiring Leaders Institute for Teachers

​​​​​​​​2014 Aspiring Leaders Academy

The San Diego County Office of Education has designed an Aspiring Leaders Academy based upon input ​provided from San Diego County superintendents on what they are looking for in district and school leaders. This course will build understanding of instructional leadership practices that enable the school leader to build a culture that results in the acceleration of student and adult learning. Participants will develop their leadership belief system, increase their understanding of high quality teaching and learning, and learn how to leverage PLC’s to support the improvement of student learning. 

This academy is recommended for those interested in strengthening their leadership skills and who may be considering a Tier I Preliminary Administrative Credential program. The academy will meet June 10 through 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Sept. 18, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Feb. 12, 8:30 a.m. to1:30 p.m.  A blended learning format will be used with opportunities for online learning and discussion. All participants will receive two professional books, Leading for Instructional Improvement and The Five Disciplines of PLC Leaders, and participate in facilitated classroom observations using a research-based framework.

Successful completion of the five-day academy will result in a SDCOE School Leadership Certificate recognizing the level of professional learning and practice accomplished through the academy.​

Meets June 10, 11, 12; Sept. 18; and Feb. 12
