Educational Leadership Superintendent Endorsement
The Superintendent Endorsement is a course of study that features e-Learning classes synced to fit your working schedule. All candidates take every class together with their cohort. The participants also undergo an on work site internship that spans the year.
This endorsement area was designed by a team of superintendents and leaders from across the state. It focuses on understanding the uniqueness of Alaskan Systems.
We plan to offer a one year course of study (pilot) beginning with Summer 2016.
Please note that this endorsement area is available for candidates residing in Alaska only.
