"I think starting the credential program with a course on vision was inspiring and a great way to dive into learning about leadership in education. The class meetings were dynamic, interesting and got me to think outside the box in terms of my role as a classroom teacher to school leader."
- Belinda K.

"Dr. Winlock provides high quality instruction and relevance that requires personal reflection and plans for action steps once in the capacity to implement elements and indicators of the standard. Dr. Westermann did a great job facilitating the online chats and provided great feedback to my final statements."
- Phillip P.

"Excellent class. SCOE does it again. I have gotten more out of these classes through SCOE than I have through my BS and Master's!!! Excellent job."

    Our Mission

    The Leadership Institute prepares and supports leaders in the Sacramento County and Capital Region. Levels of focus range from Preliminary Administrative credentialing for aspiring leaders to continued professional development and support of existing leaders, including the Clear Administrative Services Credential Program (CASCP).
