Dr. Diane Reed, Chair
M.S.Ed.: School Building Leadership (SBL)
M.S.Ed.: School Building Leader (SBL) and School District Leader (SDL)
The educational leadership programs are for candidates who hold a New York State (NYS) teaching certificate (professional or permanent) and are seeking NYS certification at the school building, or school building and school district level. They are also designed to provide high-quality and innovative standards-based educational experiences for ethical future educational leaders.
The programs use an integrated approach by combining theory, authentic case studies, class discussions, candidates’ experience, and field-based internships to address current and emerging issues impacting the quality of education. This integrated approach infuses theory with practice to support the acquisition of the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to create optimum school conditions that promote a high-quality learning environment for all students. The case studies and field experiences both teach and measure candidate competence against national and state standards.
