Principals & Employers FAQs


The CPLED Program runs from August until April. The weekly time investment varies by student, but we estimate that each assignment or competency evaluation requires about 12 to 15 hours of a student’s time.

CPLED sets tuition for the program annually. Employers may cover these costs, but are not required to do so.

Responsibilities vary according to the level of engagement of the employer or principal. You are responsible for providing students with the time necessary to successfully complete CPLED Program activities. The level of your  involvement will certainly contribute to a student’s success.

CPLED notifies principals if the student receives a grade of “competency not yet demonstrated” or “incomplete” on a competency evaluation or module. If the student is successfully moving through the program, there will be no communication initiated by CPLED until the students successfully completes the program. However, we encourage principals to make inquiries regarding progress with the student directly.
