Classified Executive Leadership Program


Across the state of California, leadership programs for preparing Classified Leaders are limited. That said, in many districts, Classified Managers lead large amounts of staff and have extensive fiscal and legal oversight. Completion of the Executive Leader Certificate demonstrates to any employer that an applicant has:

  • A thorough understanding of change leadership

  • A depth of knowledge around school policy, practices, and regulations

  • An appreciation and resourcefulness for all facets of school law

  • Skillfulness in facilitating and coaching individuals and groups

  • A breadth of tools for evaluating, coaching, and supporting employees with an understanding of fair and equitable labor laws

  • Tools to navigate hard conversations and challenging circumstances

  • A network of classified colleagues to lean upon in times of challenge.


All classes are in person from 2:00-4:00 PM on the designated days. Candidates can only miss one class in the program to receive the full certificate.
