The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Leadership Institute has celebrated the successful completion of its latest cohort to receive Preliminary Administrative Services Program (PASCP) Credentials. During a ceremony held at the SCOE Conference Center on Wednesday afternoon, 72 participants were recognized for completing the intense program for aspiring education leaders.

Successful completion of the PASCP (which is authorized by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing) allows graduates to apply for site administrator, vice-principal, and other school administration positions. Nearly a quarter of this year’s cohort have already received and accepted offers for administrative positions. Thirty-six of the graduates participated in satellite programs in Riverside, Ontario, and San Bernardino, California. Another 16 participated as part of the master’s program at National University.

Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David W. Gordon congratulated the graduates for completing the year-long program. “Be innovative, always student-focused, collaborative with students, staff, families, and the community, and continue to build upon the strong relationships you have already established,” he told the graduates.

Sacramento County Board of Education Trustee Bina Lefkovitz joined Deputy Superintendent Nancy Herota, Ed.D., and SCOE School of Education Executive Director Steven Winlock, Ed.D., in recognizing the students of 13th Leadership Institute Cohort, along with the staff and families that supported this new generation of education leaders.
