What is the Administrative Leadership Program (ALP)?

CCCOE-ALP 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), CCCOE-ALP provides high-quality, researched-based professional learning and development for new leaders. Credential candidates expand and deepen their leadership knowledge, skills, and behaviors through individualized, job-embedded induction.

Program highlights include:

  • One-on-one coaching by an experienced administrator and certified leadership coach.
  • Assisting and supporting candidates to lead, reflect, and grow their leadership capacity.
  • Advancing 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 setting goals and outlining their experiences and growth as leaders. Upon completion of the two-year program, candidates will be recommended for the Clear Administrative Services Credential


Who Should Participate?

Any administrator with a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential who is currently employed in an administrative position is eligible to participate in the CCCOE-ALP.

The program is also open to veteran principals in transition and/or seeking advanced professional learning opportunities with a one-on-one leadership coach.
