Dual Language Principal Leadership, Certificate
Offered in: Chicago
This certificate program is intended for licensed teachers who have completed Roosevelt’s MA degree in Dual Language Teacher Leadership and who wish to add a principal endorsement to their Illinois Professional Educator Licenses. The required courses prepare dual language teacher leaders to manage and lead PreK – 12 schools as assistant principals or principals.
Students enrolled in Roosevelt’s MA degree in Dual Language Teacher Leadership can apply for admission after the completion of twenty-one (21) credit hours of Dual Language Teacher Leadership courses. Candidates for admission must earn approval from the steering committee for Roosevelt's principal preparation program. A minimum 3.0 GPA in Dual Language Teacher Leadership courses is required. In addition, candidates must present evidence of a passing score on the ILTS Test of Basic Skills or TAP (Test of Academic Proficiency), successfully present a portfolio of artifacts documenting the leadership achievements and potential of the candidate, sit for an interview, and successfully complete a written response to scenarios.
Because the requirements of the admission portfolio are extensive and intensive, it is not unusual for students to apply for admission after the completion of the MA degree. Applicants are encouraged to communicate early and often with university faculty and a professional advisor in the College of Education before applying for admission.
Successful completion of the following courses and all other state requirements (e.g., content exam, teacher evaluation training) will lead to the Principal Endorsement on an Illinois Professional Educator license.
