Is there a participation cost to be factored into the budget for the Commissioner's Leadership Academy (CLA)?
Yes. If a district is hiring a continuous improvement director (CID), then the Year 1 budget should include a line item of $4,000 for the CID to participate in the CLA. This amount includes the content, travel, meals and hotel.
The budget estimates for Years 2, 3 and 4 should incorporate $4,000 for each CID, principal and school or district leader who will attend or facilitate the CLA. For more information, see https://www.floridacims.org/faqs/281.
