What is the Director's Institute?
The purpose of the Directors Institute is:
- To strengthen local leadership and management resources and abilities to support implementation
- To develop, then test, refine and apply implementation and evaluation tools and resources
- To stimulate and organize shared learning that guides improvement in implementation
- To strengthen state and regional capacities for ongoing implementation support with counties
The California Child Welfare Core Practice Model offers a timely opportunity to launch a Directors Institute series that develops a cohort of strong effective leaders by building their capacities for leading implementation.
The Directors Institute Road Map includes the CPM activities scheduled to take place over the next six months.
The Leading Edge:
This periodic newsletter provides you with information on topics that help Directors prepare for implementation activities in the coming year, as well as support your staff who are working to create implementation tools and resources. Each issue will contains information about the progress of the Development Circles, key concepts that will help guide your planning for implementation, and examples of the great work that counties are already doing to support Practice Model implementation. In addition, we will keep you apprised of upcoming events, such as webinars, Convenings, and Directors Learning Sessions.
