School Leadership Concentration Information

The goal of the School Leadership program is to prepare educators to become effective, instructional leaders who will have a positive impact on professional practice and student learning. Such leaders are centered on children, clear in their moral purpose, and collaborative in their relationships. With their staffs, they are able to create and sustain a school structure and culture conducive to student and adult growth. Throughout the School Leadership program, students will have opportunities to work individually and with colleagues, in the classroom and in the field, explore concepts and acquire and apply skills. Through a blend of required and elective courses, each student is provided with a meaningful and lasting educational experience upon which she/he can draw when actively engaged in the science and art of leading a school.  It is possible to obtain the Vermont School Principal Endorsement through this program.  Candidates for admission to endorsement program must hold a valid professional educator’s license and have three years of teaching experience.
