EDU 577 Principal Certification Internship

6 Credits

The professional literature and national groups which study the professional development of principals all recommend an intern-type experience. The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires such a culminating experience, since practical hands-on development of a principal is the primary key to success. This course, therefore, involves working with a mentor principal ideally within the student’s own school district. As part of this course, an action plan, which must be approved by the course professor, is developed with the student’s mentor principal. A major component of this action plan includes a research problem that is real and needs resolution within the cooperating school or school district. This internship may not be attempted until the candidate has successfully completed the required courses for certification and has fulfilled all state testing requirements.
