The Educational Leadership Tier I Certification-only Program provides a unique opportunity for P-12 educational leaders to further develop the skills necessary for school administrative positions through a rigorous performance-based coursework/ program. This program is designed for those who already possess an M.Ed.  This 18 credit hour program is administered through a cohort model, and the course sequence is prescribed and provided to candidates at orientation.  The 250 hours of clinical practice are job-embedded and performance-based throughout the program, and are guided cooperatively by the University and the school/district partner via supervised field experience courses.
