Professional Learning

Other Leadership Programs

FCMAT recognizes the importance of leadership preparation and is affiliated with or participates in a variety of programs in addition to the CBO Mentor Program. FCMAT’s goal is to continue to instruct district administrative positions, including chief business officials, to better understand and perform their jobs and to learn essential leadership skills, as well as better understand the demands and the wide range of areas covered, so they can be better equipped for the job. FCMAT either operates or is closely affiliated with all of the statewide leading CBO preparation programs by providing staff instructors or assisting financially to lower the cost to individuals who qualify.

Most FCMAT staff members are involved in these important leadership preparation programs in some manner, whether as curriculum leaders, presenters or facilitators.
