2014-2015 Administrator Mentoring Cohort (AMC) & Induction Program

In addition to fulfilling a technical assistance requirement for our Colorado Charter School Program grant recipient schools, the Administrator Mentoring Cohort (AMC) is an induction program for charter school administrators. Charter school leaders who successfully complete the AMC induction program will be recommended for professional principal's licensure. This accreditation will enable the AMC to serve three purposes:

  1. To provide charter leaders in start-up schools with quality support as they get their schools off the ground.
  2. For CCSP grant recipients-the AMC fulfills leadership mentoring Technical Assistance requirements of the grant.
  3. To offer charter school leaders a 2 year induction program to validate their initial principal license in a way that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and demands of the charter sector.
    Note: In order to be eligible for this induction program, school leaders must already hold their initial principal license and be working with an AMC affiliated mentor.

The AMC structure is broken into 4 cohorts and each cohort has a required number of mentoring hours that must be met in addition to attending at least 4 of the 6 AMC training days scheduled throughout the school year. View the breakdown of the AMC structure and related program fees. The requirements for successful completion of the AMC program, including induction are outlined in the Mentee Agreement.

Please note that charter leaders do not need to be in the Colorado Charter School Program (CCSP) grant program or pursuing induction to be eligible to participate in the AMC Induction Program. All are welcome!
