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

Welcome to the 2014-2015 Administrator Mentoring Cohort! This page will be updated frequently with important information for participants about upcoming meetings and program reminders.

In addition to fulfilling a technical assistance requirement for our CCSP grant recipient schools, the 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. (Please note that in order to be eligable 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. Click here to 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.
