Preliminary Administrative Services Credential

The Orange County Department of Education Preliminary Administrative Services Credential program is designed for aspiring school administrators who seek to develop the skills to effectively lead a 21st century educational organization.  The sixteen (16) month model is a blend of coursework and performance-based tasks, providing ongoing opportunities for candidates to learn educational theory and apply that understanding in authentic in-class and in-field environments.  The California Administrator Performance Expectations (CAPE's) define the six categories of leadership as:

*Development and Implementation of a Shared Vision

*Instructional Leadership

*Management and the Learning Environment

*Family and Community Engagement

*Ethics and Integrity

*External Context and Policy
