Summer Institute: Principal or CIPD License

Position Yourself for Leadership Roles with an Administrative Specialist License in Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development

The 6-hour Principal or CIPD License Workshop allows students with an M.Ed. in leadership or administration to earn a Building Principal or Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development license in an expedited, hybrid format that includes online work and limited face-to-face sessions. This post-master’s program focuses on integrating theories and practices of educational leadership.

The curriculum is specifically designed to cover content, including managing fiscal and human resources, professional development and organizational climate and culture, that students need to pass the Ohio Assessment for Educators Educational Leadership exam.
