Earn a Degree in Education That Balances Theory With Practicality
Designed for principals, the Ed.S. Superintendent prepares them for Assistant Superintendent and Superintendent responsibilities through coursework that:
- Focuses on district leadership of staff, school boards, unions, and community strategic roles, limits, and responsibilities in light of local, state, and federal regulations and political pressures
- Explores the relationships between organizational change, professional growth, and leadership by engaging in theoretical and research-based readings, discussions, and activities regarding change, innovation, leadership, organizational culture, and professional development
- Provides significant opportunities to synthesize and apply the knowledge and skills identified in the district-level standards through substantial, sustained, standards-based work in real settings.
Students who complete the degree program and pass the Ohio Assessments for Educators test series are eligible for a Superintendent license in the state of Ohio. Beginning September 1, 2013, a new test series (Ohio Assessments for Educators), will replace many of the Praxis II(r) tests as the required Ohio educator licensure tests.
