Superintendent License Program

The Superintendent License Program is Nationally Recognized by the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC), which is a premier accreditation organization for Educational Administration Programs.

The Superintendent Licensure Program includes a balanced approach of on-line and in-class instruction which is coupled with internships. The program, which can be completed in twelve months, focuses on the managerial, planning/leadership, and human relations responsibilities of district leaders.

The program provides students with an opportunity to gain substantive knowledge about the operations of a school district. This objective, however, is addressed with consideration that the students are nearly all current school leaders--e.g. principals and the like--with a plethora of other responsibilities. Among other things, a total of 9 in-class sessions are scheduled over the course of the entire program.
