Students who hold an Arkansas Building Level Administrator License with one year of licensed experience as a building level administrator may add this endorsement by satisfactorily completing the 24 hours of District Level Administrator Endorsement courses listed below, orally defending a professional portfolio, and passing the School Superintendent Assessment (SSA) approved by the Arkansas Department of Education. Admission requirements for this endorsement are the same as the Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership.
This course must be approved by the program director. It is strongly recommended that EDFD 6520 - Research Methods be used as the elective course if a recent research course has not been taken. Any courses that were taken as part of another degree cannot be counted toward the district level administrator endorsement’s program of study.
