The Lindenwood University School of Education also offers the Educational Specialist in School Administration degree that is designed for those with a MA in a field other than School Administration. This program leads to initial principal certification and thus prepares you to serve as an educational leader. You will be taught the skills needed to effectively lead teachers and other school staff in order to create a productive and positive school environment. Furthermore, you will analyze current research to understand what works in education and help teachers implement those best practices in the classroom.
This program leads to eligibility for initial principal certification in the state of Missouri and requires at least 21 credit hours of coursework at the 60000 level and you must pass the Praxis II, School Leaders Licensure Assessment. You must also have a valid teaching certificate at the level which you intend to be certified and two years of teaching experience.
