EDU 697 - Superintendent Field Experience & Portfolio Development

This course is designed to provide the student with the opportunity to practice those attitudes, skills, and behaviors necessary to provide positive and effective leadership at the school district and central office level. During the EDU657 Field Experience, the student is required to complete 240 hours of field experience to the district superintendency in collaboration with the university's supervisor (EDU657 and/or EDU697 course professor).

The on-site supervisor must hold a superintendent certification and have at least two years experience as superintendent and/or assistant superintendent.

The student will select, perform and complete activities involving concepts of educational administration, management of school operations and services, personnel management, instructional programs, professional development and assessment, pupil personnel administration, and school community relations as they align with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards of effective leadership practice in education. Other Program of Education Standard bodies might also be required to make alignment to the student's work.
