EDL-820 Field-Based Practicum for Superintendents

The Field-Based Practicum for Superintendents is the culminating activity for students seeking the School Administrator endorsement. It requires a 150-hour internship experience at the district level, at a school site or at an alternative site. In the Practicum, students can put leadership theory into practice, working with a local school superintendent or other district official. Students will develop the practical skills and knowledge necessary to become an informed, dynamic professional at the senior administrator level in a comprehensive school district serving children in pre-K-12. The field experience will test the application of theory, challenge the ability to promote the success of all students, and provide opportunities to develop the skills necessary to solve complex organizational issues. The course experience will culminate in a final Capstone narrative or executive summary that demonstrates the candidate's understanding and acceptance of the responsibility of making decisions typical of those made by educational leaders (ISLLC 1, 3, 6; NJDOE 1, 3, 6).
