Leadership Coach Certification

ACSA Certified Coaches

The ACSA Clear Administrative Credential Program (CACP) is focused on developing leadership skills of current site and district administrators and is grounded in the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSEL). Leadership coaches guide candidates in the two-year program toward competency in the CPSEL. The job-embedded induction program involves face-to-face meetings with credential candidates in their work settings. A leadership coach is the most pivotal piece in a credential candidate’s program, providing support in meeting program requirements, self-assessment, goal setting, reflection and evidence of growth in the CPSEL.
