An exciting professional development opportunity is being offered for aspiring educational leaders of color through the Colorado Association of School Executives. The Leadership, Equity and Diversity Program is meant to help build a more representative, diverse and equitable candidate pool for leadership positions in both school and district administration across our state.
The LEAD program is made up of six-sessions that run from October through March. Specific sessions dates are posted on CASE’s LEAD Program webpage. Sessions will consist of instructor presentations, self-reflection, online discussions, learning assignments and networking opportunities.
A nominal fee of $95 is required to participate. Program participants may also apply for college credit through Adams State University or for CDE contact hours for recertification.
Those interested can fill out the application on the program webpage. Applicants must also have a formal letter of approval from their supervisor to participate. Applications are due via email to Arlene Salyards, CASE’s director of professional learning, at email@example.com, by Monday, Sept. 27. Candidates will be notified of acceptance status by Friday, Oct. 1.
