Program Administration Scale | Directors Leadership Academy

The Directors Leadership Academy is offered to administrators of child care programs residing in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, by Child Care Resources, Inc., a resource and referral agency. The goal of the Leadership Academy is to inform administrators of best practices in program administration and provide technical assistance in achieving goals; provide intensive training on the Program Administration Scale (PAS) to guide program improvements; and to support peer mentoring relationships among administrators. As part of the Academy all centers are informally assessed using the PAS. The results of the assessment are used to guide the administrators in selecting five areas of improvement. Technical assistance provided by specialists is centered on these areas. One goal of the project is to create a network of administrators who can call on each other for support and advice. Peers are asked to meet in small groups two times each month to review goals on their improvement plans. In addition, monthly opportunities for advanced level trainings on topics related to administration are available.
