The Teacher Leadership Academic Certificate (TLAC) is ideal for emerging teacher leaders looking to expand their circle of influence as well as established teacher leaders already fulfilling key leadership roles. Guided by the National Teacher Leadership Model Standards as well as the Colorado Quality Teacher standers, the Academic Certificate will provide a strong foundation to address school reform measures. TLAC is comprised of four courses totaling 12 semester hours:
- Leading Professional Learning
- Leading and Supporting Collaborative Cultures
- Leading for Inclusion & Equity
- Fostering Change to Enhance Teaching/Learning
The Academic Certificate is an element of the Master's emphasis in Teacher Leadership; however the TLAC may be completed independently. Upon conclusion, the Teacher Leadership emphasis will be noted on the transcript.
