On Saturday, June 21, a celebration inside the Sheldon High School auditorium was held to honor the graduating class of the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Leadership Institute. During the ceremony, 70 participants received a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential, allowing them to apply for site administrator, vice-principal, and other district administration positions. The credentials are authorized by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
The Leadership Institute, part of the SCOE School of Education, prepares aspiring administrators to become highly qualified education leaders. It also helps train newly appointed administrators (with one or two years of experience), continuing administrators (with three or more years of experience), and established district administrators.
The School of Education is made up of two divisions: Teaching and Leading. The “Teaching” division includes the Teacher Intern Program and the Teacher Induction Program. The Leadership Institute falls under its “Leading” division. For information about the SCOE School of Education, call (916) 228-2538.
