Teacher & Leader Efficacy
Research demonstrates that both solid leadership and quality instruction are necessary for schools to be successful. As a result, the CREC has taken a two-pronged approach to teacher and leader efficacy: 1) supporting teachers in improving their craft through coaching support and collaborative work across districts and BOCES and 2) ensuring principals are well trained and ready to effectively lead their schools.
OUR CURRENT WORK
In 2016, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) announced new requirements for Principal Induction Programs across the state. To assist rural BOCES and districts in meeting these updated requirements, the CREC secured grant funding to develop a program that met CDE’s new requirements. In Fall 2018, the South Central BOCES launched their newly approved principal induction program with 9 principal candidates.
