Each candidate is free to arrange their own flight. Experience has taught us that candidates usually want to go early, and/or stay late, to extend a 'vacation' as part of the trip. In addition, candidates are usually flying out of various cities, including Los Angeles or San Francisco. Because of these variations, we do not reserve a block of seats on a certain flight for exact days. Instead, we have found candidates prefer some guidance- then purchase (or use frequent flyer miles) for the dates that work for them. In addition, many candidates are coordinating their trip with friends and family, who may join them later, or for the full dates of the program. Flight costs vary beginning at $900+, depending on airline, how early ticket is purchased, etc.. Note- with increased cost of oil, it is likely airfares will also increase. (For those with lots of frequent flyer miles -- both American and Delta Airlines currently have attractive programs to use 40,000-50,000 frequent flyer miles for flights from the US to Brazil) Candidates are encouraged to make flight arrangements as soon as they are accepted into the program.

Each July since 2004, school administrators from throughout California have traveled to Chiang Mai, Thailand as part of this international program for professional licensure. The overwhelming success of the Thailand program, and increased interest in a Latin American option served as a catalyst for the Brazilian program. This will be the third year of offering the program in Rio. "This collaboration with international school leaders and educators provide an unprecedented international opportunity for professional development and learning by both our California administrators and international colleagues", stated Dr. Linda Orozco, Founder & Director of the Leadership Innovation & this international program since 2004.

For nine years the program has been offered internationally in Thailand and three years in Brazil, and consistently receives high praise from participating school leaders. Candidates can be assured of the same high-quality, international experience as past years. Here are a few alumni comments:
"The Tier II ‘international’ experience offered me, as a busy administrator, the opportunity to have an "out of the box" intensive experience that furthered my leadership skills and help me to expand my perspective of educational administration - gaining an international perspective!"
-Loretta Whitson, Commissioner,
"What an experience!! This was an opportunity of a lifetime to complete Tier II. It was incredibly challenging to complete the competency requirements but it was amazing how I was able to understand and take a closer look at my abilities. It was an educational and cultural enlightenment. And it gave me such a rich perspective and educational opportunity."
-Karen Gerhard, Principal, Capistrano Unified SD
"The experience was invaluable because it required a more complex level of adult learning and it perfectly integrated the discrete functions of cultural competence, communication, problem solving, organizational skills and time management, application of technology, and understanding of effective ELD practice."
-Grace LaTegola, Director of Categorical Programs and Grants,, Grossmont Union High SD
"The Tier II program was an extraordinary and wonderful experience for me. It provided the opportunity to look at educational leadership, schools, professional collaboration and culture."
-Martin Griffin, High School Principal,
“I had the good fortune to be able to attend Dr. Orozco’s class in Thailand and it was a remarkable experience. Classes like hers are wonderful opportunities.
-Debra Quan, Director of Human Resources, San Rafael City Schools
