Make your administrative position matter by using theory, fundamental techniques, and research based best practices. This program provides both historical and current knowledge of legislation, laws and research findings, existing and emerging theory, and methods of assessment—both individually and state-wide. Learn to encourage respect and social responsibility in your students, district employees, teachers, and staff members, as well as in parents.
