Students are provided preparation for administrative and/or supervisory roles in public and private schools. A six-credit internship (two subsequent 3-credit semesters - 320 clock hours) must be taken and scheduled during the last two semesters. Continuous enrollment in EDUC 690 is required until completion of all 320 clock hours.
Students wishing to obtain the administrative and supervisory preK-12 endorsement must take the School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA) before applying to the Virginia Department of Education for the endorsement and have taught successfully for at least three (3) years. Students should take the SLLA no earlier than the final semester and have scores sent to Longwood University.
