“Today’s Students Need Leadership Training”
The Chronicle of Higher Education 12-5-2010
Please complete this short form to download an information pack about this
The School Principalship program prepares students to lead traditional public
schools, public school academies, or in the growing area of charter school
administration. Generally, students selecting this program have had classroom
teaching experience and plan to move to administrative positions. However,
others remain in the classroom with a new perspective on how schools operate and
choose to lead in other ways.
Completion of this degree qualifies candidates for initial administrative
certification in Michigan.
This degree offers a unique, online program for a select group of educational
leaders who believe in charter schools and the power of education to change
lives. This exceptional degree program will enable you to make powerful and
positive changes in yourself and your charter school.
Note: 3 hours of EDL 699.
Students are required to complete a Professional Portfolio that consists of additional evidence of significant scholarship and ability relating to competence in administration and leadership. The portfolio is developed and maintained by the student during the graduate educational experience. Portfolios should include evidence of his or her competence in the standard of the Educational Leadership Constituents Council (ELCC) standards.
The portfolio is composed of the student's resume and professional platform.
- Resumé - Detailed educational and professional experiences.
- Professional Platform - A series of beliefs and assumptions that expresses what the student believes to be true, possible, and desirable. The platform provides the foundation that guides the student's thinking and decisions he or she makes about educational leadership issues.
- Supporting Documents - The portfolio also includes relevant documents that the student has created throughout his or her graduate experience. These materials support the student's platform and serve as key examples of the student's scholarly work.
Portfolios are developed with the aid of the student's advisor and are reviewed and assessed during the student's exit interview.
