Principal Certification Program

  • We know that educational leadership and, more specifically, standards of leadership are competencies required for instructional success. "Instructional success" is defined by student learning and achievement. As educational leaders, it is incumbent upon us to develop exceptional leaders for the future. Best practices reveal the importance of developing educational leaders who are-first and foremost-highly skilled in facilitating student learning. We should be raising these leaders from within the ranks of our school system.
    Qualified candidates will come together to collaborate and participate in a viable, cost-effective quality program designed specifically to meet the increasing demand around accountability and student achievement. The CLIU program is a comprehensive program one would expect and will be delivered using a rigorous, yet modernized approach.
