Chief Innovation Officer Program - 2018 Application
Hello! This is the Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) 2018-19 Program application...

You are here because you must be a teacher or educator leader who wants to help transform education into a creative, collaborative, and critical thinking experience for teachers and students.

The Chief Innovation Officer program is open to educators in the United States, with at least 5 years of teaching experience and who aspire to a leadership position within a school district or independent school. The CIO program is designed to provide individuals with the training and background to lead the planning, design, and implementation of innovative educational practices that enhance teaching and learning.

The CIO Program cost is $2,200 per participant. Once you have been accepted to the program, we will send you information for billing and optional payment plans.

The Chief Innovation Officer Program is a 7-month program, which starts on Friday August 10, 2018 and finishes with graduation in March 2019. Program candidates will attend class in person once a month at the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College. The monthly sessions will take place on Friday evenings (6pm - 9:00pm) and all day (9am-3pm) Saturdays. This schedule is designed to facilitate attendance by working educators. Between each face to face session, you will be required to complete coursework, which includes threaded discussions, blog posts, and assignments related to the course content. Attendance at each face to face session and participation in the online community are an essential part of the program.
