Leadership Development Program

In an effort to create an active and highly competent leadership community, the Columbia County School District has developed five leadership courses for its employees.  These courses are not mandatory to apply for a position in our district.  They are intended to better prepare candidates for the desired leadership position.  The course descriptions and participant applications (if needed) are linked below.  Also, we are including the names of county personnel you can contact with any questions for each respective course.

  1. Teacher Leader Course-for teachers who are interested in serving in teacher leadership roles, not necessarily administrative roles.  The deadline to apply is September 18, 2020.

     2.  Aspiring Leaders Course-for teachers who have four years of experience and aspire to be an
          assistant principal. 
          Principals must approve and submit the candidate's application by September 18, 2020.
