EDU 600 - Issues in School Superintendency

The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with the major technical and educational leadership functions of the superintendency. This course introduces foundational theory and practice of leadership skills, tasks, responsibilities and challenges as they are applied to school superintendents and central office administrators. Historical perspectives, issues and problems facing the superintendent will also be examined. Organizational culture, the dynamics and politics of the superintendency and Board of Education relationships, plus other impacting elements (legal issues, fiscal responsibilities, and governance) will be studied. Leadership in today’s schools is not learned in isolation. This course assumes that learning is a social process and will attempt to use this social process as the students learn about the superintendency.
