What is the Cobb Education Consortium Leadership Academy?

The mission of the Consortium is to combine the resources, energies, and talents from Chattahoochee Technical College, the Cobb County School District, Georgia Highlands College, Kennesaw State University, and Marietta City Schools. The Consortium members address areas of common concern in moving public education in Cobb County from its current level of excellence to the exemplary levels, which will be needed to prepare students to become responsible citizens, capable workers, and well-rounded human beings. Each of the Cobb institutions complements the others and is noted for its excellence. A model annual Leadership Academy prepares leaders from all member institutions for service projects that benefit and serve the county. For more information, please visit the CEC website at www.cobb-ed-consortium.org.

How does this differ from the Cobb County School District Leadership Academies?

CEC Leadership Academy is not specific to Cobb County School District (CCSD). Experiences gained in CEC pertain to community and P-16 experiences (i.e. post-secondary, legislative, etc.).

Why should I get involved in this leadership academy?

This is an excellent opportunity for educators who aspire to develop leadership skills, network with dynamic community leaders, and increase awareness and understanding of local educational issues.

Does this Leadership Academy “count” as credit for attending the CCSD Leadership Academy?

No, CEC Leadership Academy and CCSD Leadership Academies are two distinctly different academies.

When and where will the CEC Leadership Academy meet?

Academy members will meet once a month during the first year. The second year is dedicated to completing a service-oriented project. Meetings will be held at various locations in and around Cobb County.

What are the eligibility requirements?

  • full-time CCSD employee with a minimum of three (3) years service;
