EAD 691 - Superintendent Development - A

This is the first course in a three course sequence to assist middle-level school administrators (principals, directors, coordinators, assistant superintendents) in understanding and preparing for the school superintendency. In this first course students are introduced to a conceptual model that presents four types of leadership the successful superintendent must exhibit (instructional, political, organizational, strategic) in both the district and community environment. The model also incorporates the impact of the superintendency on one’s personal life. In addition, students develop a first draft of their educational platform (beliefs) as a superintendent and will begin to examine superintendent-level thinking about issues of practice by working in a cohort team with two local superintendents on real problems of practice.
