The School of Education also offers the Educational Specialist in School Administration 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 the student to serve as an educational leader. The student 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, the student 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 22 credit hours of coursework at the 60000 level and students must pass the Praxis II, School Leaders Licensure Assessment. Applicants must have a valid teaching certificate at the level at which they intend to be certified and two years of teaching experience.
