Open Enrollment vs. Cycles
We offer our program using a cohort model. You work through the program together with students who entered at the same time. This allows you to build a close-knit community of learning.
There are many professional associations in the area of school administration and leadership. Virtually every level of administration has a related association.
We strive to develop practitioners in the field. Therefore, there are three courses that require a field experience component.
Certifications for Administrators
The NYS Education Department (NYSED) sanctions school administration in New York State by three certifications: School Building Leader (SBL), School District Leader (SDL), and School District Business Leader (SDBL). New York State requires any person serving more than 10 periods per week in public school building-level administrative responsibilities to hold SBL certification.
