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 on June 25 at the SCOE Conference Center, 59 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. Many of this year’s cohort have already received and accepted offers for administrative positions. Thirty-five of the graduates participated in satellite programs in Riverside, Ontario, and San Bernardino, California. Another 12 participated as part of the master’s program at National University.

Deputy Superintendent Nancy Herota, Ed.D. joined SCOE School of Education Executive Director L. Steven Winlock, Ed.D., in recognizing the students of the 14th Leadership Institute Cohort. Herota reminded the new education leaders of SCOE’s motto (“Education Empowers”), challenging the future leaders to stay passionate about education. “It’s critical for you to understand the importance of building community and creating collaborative, inclusive learning,” she said, encouraging them all to form supportive relationships with their colleagues.
