Candidates who wish to complete
coursework toward certification in school administration must complete
six tasks (not necessarily in this order): (1) Interview with program director Please call (904) 620-2990 to speak with the Program Director for Master’s degrees. (2) Writing sample
If writing skills are found to be deficient, a program of remediation may be required.
(3) Successful application for graduate studies at the University of North Florida Application procedures and materials can be found online at The Graduate School.
Candidates may not register for coursework until they have been
completely admitted to graduate studies and accepted by the program. (4) Principal Leadership Standard Inventory This
Inventory will be used to diagnosis missing leadership competencies and
to prescribe coursework that must be completed. There are ten separate
competencies represented on the inventory, one to match each of the ten
Leadership Standards defined for principals in the State of Florida.
Candidates should complete both available versions of the Inventory
(initial and final) and report all results. The inventory can be found
at www.floridaschoolleaders.org. (5) Florida Educational Leadership Exam (FELE) Competencies
that have been demonstrated on the inventory will not be officially
recorded until the FELE has been successfully completed and the results
officially reported to the Program Director. (6) Prescribed coursework Each
competency is linked to one course during which the knowledge and
skills are provided. Candidates must complete a minimum of two courses
and may have to complete a maximum of ten courses. The alignment between
leadership standards and courses appears below.
