Cooperative Educational Services in collaboration with the Leadership Institute's Board of Trustees will execute programs which meet the specific assessed needs of school leaders.
The Cost for the Aspirant and New Administrator Induction Programs:

New Administrator Induction Program
The C.E.S New Administrator Induction Program is a two-year standards based support program for any administrator who is either new to his/her position or experienced but new to his/her district. This program is intended to compliment district orientation programs. Components of this program include district assigned mentors, training for mentors, a regional network of collegial support, and a series of professional development opportunities designed to be responsive to the needs and interests of this group. Supervision and Evaluation CEU's are awarded for participation in this program. For more information, please call 203-365-8847.
The C.E.S. Administrator Aspirant Program is intended for teachers who have leadership potential and may be contemplating a career path in school administration. Participants in this program will have the opportunity to meet and dialog with outstanding administrator role models, and learn “first hand" by attending four days of seminars as well as shadowing administrator practitioners in our region. Application deadline is prior to the end of each school year for participation the following year. For more information, please call 203-365-8847.
In collaboration with CABE, C.E.S. offers two forums for Board members and district personnel on major topics of interest for school systems. Previous programs have been offered on No Child Left Behind, the new conception for achieving high school credit, and the standards movement.
