- The Teacher Leadership Certificate. An earned master's degree is required for entrance into this program.
The CAS in Educational Administration Program prepares individuals to be instructional leaders in school buildings and district offices. Candidates who complete the program’s educational requirements and successfully pass the School District Leader (SDL) leadership assessment administered by the New York State Education Department are awarded the CAS in Educational Administration, which is the post-masters/pre-doctorate degree. In addition, the CAS Program in Educational Administration offered at Brockport is comprehensive and leads to successful candidates being eligible to apply for both the School Building Leader (SBL) and School District Leader (SDL) administrative certifications issued by the New York State Education Department. The SBL and SDL administrative certifications will not be issued by the New York State Education Department until the candidate has taken and successfully passed both the SBL and SDL leadership assessments.
The CAS in School Business Administration Program is designed expressly for candidates seeking school district business positions. Upon completion of the SBA Program and successfully passing the School District Business Leader (SDBL) leadership assessment administered by the New York State Education Department, candidates are awarded the CAS in School Business Administration and are then eligible to apply for the School District Business Leader (SDBL) certification issued by the New York State Education Department.
All applications for administrative certification must be endorsed by an institution, which means the successful completion/graduation from an approved program registered with NYSED.
In addition to the educational and experiential requirements for these certifications, NYSED has instituted an assessment for each administrative certification plus a continuing education/ professional development requirement. Please access the NYSTCE link for more information about certification assessment requirements.
