This program prepares educators for district-level administrative responsibility. This program is designed to build upon the candidate’s administrative knowledge base of building-level leadership. The focus is the development of district-level leadership skills including policy, human resources/bargaining for purposes of union contract negotiations, and district finance. The superintendency and internship courses provide the simulations and hands-on experience at a district level which are not included in principal licensure preparation.
