Clear Administrative Credential Program (CACP)

Our program is approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing as a Professional Preparation Program for the Clear Administrative Services Credential. In partnership with the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA), we provide high-quality, researched-based professional learning and development for new leaders. Across the two year program, credential candidates expand and deepen their leadership knowledge, skills, and behaviors through individualized, job-embedded induction.

Two-Year Program highlights include:

  • One-on-one coaching by an experienced administrator and certified leadership coach that assists and supports candidates to lead, reflect, and grow. (40 hours per year)
  • Engaging in self-selected professional learning guided by the candidate's work setting and individualized goals. (20 hours per year)
  • Using reflective practices to advance the knowledge and skills of candidates in relation to the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs).
  • Completing a portfolio based on an Individual Induction Plan, including goals, actions, and outcomes. Upon completion of the two-year program, candidates will be recommended for the Clear Administrative Services Credential
