A critical aspect of the CACE mission is to bring school leaders from across North America together to exchange best practices, experiences, ideas, and strategies. One way we pursue this mission is through the Score Group, a peer collaboration process. Score Group schools meet together four times over the course of two academic years to focus on the critical areas of marketing and enrollment management; team leadership and school governance; professional development and deeper learning practices; and strategic financial management. In addition, one of the CACE Fellows will walk alongside your school leaders for two academic years, providing your school with additional resources, consultation, and professional development opportunities.
Interested? Check out the What is a Score Group? Information page. Still interested? Take a moment to e-mail Dr. Tim Van Soelen or call him at 712.722.6228 for additional information. Ready to apply? Please complete the Score Group Application by October 15.
