Executive-style coaching for certificated and classified school leaders
Coaching Transforms Leaders and Schools
Executive leadership coaching has been an essential practice in the private sector for over 40 years. Now ACOE is poised to provide your leaders with individualized leadership coaching and professional development that is targeted and differentiated to meet specific needs. Our coaching model provides leadership growth toward a variety of outcomes that are based upon the needs of the leader, targeted at growth areas that are collaboratively identified, and are nested within the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs). Whether just starting out or a successful veteran administrator, a leader can benefit by the opportunity for reflection and learning through a non-supervisory partnership.
Leadership Coaching focuses on either a performance goal, where an administrator may have received feedback about or self-identified a need to improve a particular skill or behavior; or a developmental goal, where the administrator is interested in evolving his/her leadership.

Coaching is available to schools and districts on a fee-for-service basis.
