The pleasure of becoming an educated person is the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought— that is to be educated. —Edith Hamilton

Responding to PI 34: Implications for Certification and Licensure

Responding to changes in State administrative rules, the ELPA Program Committee has recently revised all certification programs leading to licensed administrative positions in Wisconsin. This includes programs for superintendents, principals, directors of special education/pupil service, directors of instruction, and program coordinators for local vocational education. Anchored in the ISLLC Standards (Interstate School Leader Licensure Consortium) for school leaders and Wisconsin PI 34 Standards for Administrators, program components include sequenced course work, field studies embedded in classes, the development of a whole school improvement plan, administrative field experiences, and the development of an electronic portfolio that documents learning and exhibits levels of performance against the standards. Students are also required to present their portfolio at a practitioner reviewed showcase conference sponsored in the department.

The Department offers courses leading to professional certification. Completion of these programs leads to state certification and licensure as an administrator.

Information follows regarding admission, program requirements, minimum standards and progress toward certification and transfer credits. Applicants are responsible for following the departmental policies as stated below.

These requirements are effective for all students admitted after July 1, 2004.
