Sneak Peek at the Schedule and Meet the Mentors

With CSDC’s annual summer training, the Leadership Intensive (June 24-27, 2024 in Sacramento, CA), right around the corner, this year’s program is taking shape.

CSDC is excited to share an overview of this year’s schedule, including a list of the presenters and mentors making this year’s program an especially impactful one.

Registration – which is significantly discounted for CSDC Member Schools and Authorizers – closes next week on Thursday, May 16.

2024 Schedule Overview

This year’s program features over 30 hours of instructor-led trainings, with numerous presentations by CSDC’s expert staff, including CSDC Founder & Executive Director, Eric Premack.

New in 2024: Ongoing Mentorship

CSDC is excited to announce a new benefit of Leadership Intensive included in the price of registration at no additional cost: ongoing mentorship from an experienced California charter school leader.

Mentees will meet their mentors during the Leadership Intensive and then connect virtually for a 60-minute session each month throughout the 2024-25 school year.

And for those mentees also planning to attend the 2024 CSDC Conference, CSDC will host space so that mentors and mentees can catch-up in-person in Sacramento this fall.**

For many school leaders – especially those new to their roles – it can be lonely at the top. Mentorship provides a great opportunity to share ideas, ask questions, and receive strategic guidance from experienced leaders who understand the challenges and opportunities of leadership in the charter schools sector.

CSDC is proud to announce this year’s list of mentors who are committed to helping new school leaders feel confident in their roles and assured in the knowledge that they have a trusted peer on whom they can rely:

Eduardo de Leon
Executive Director, Language Academy of Sacramento

Michelle Hammons
Principal, Eagle Peak Montessori School

Jodi Jones
Chief Executive Officer, Innovative Education Management

Gayle Nadler
Executive Director, Multicultural Learning Center

Rich Harrison
Chief Executive Officer, Lighthouse Community Public Schools

Dr. Robin Stout
Superintendent, Rocklin Academy Family of Schools


Registration Closes May 16
