Upcoming Superintendent Licensure Cohort at the University of Minnesota

  • The University of Minnesota (UMN) , College of Education and Human Development, Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) will offer superintendent licensure-required courses at the cohort tuition rate ($350/credit as compared to the $613/credit standard tuition rate). The courses will be available this summer 2014 and will be held on the U of M campus in Minneapolis in combined sections with regularly enrolled licensure students.

    The two classes to be offered this summer 2014 are:

    OLPD 5322 - Leaders in the Superintendency and Central office (3 credits)

    OLPD 5393 - Leading School Finance Elections (1 credit)

    Students who are concurrently seeking both principal and superintendent licensure will need to complete an internship specific to each license, including a second enrollment in OLPD 5396 - Field Experience in PK-12 Administration (3 credits). This course can be taken at the cohort rate Fall semester 2014, and will be available on campus in Minneapolis or with the Hopkins cohort.

    Participation in the cohort section of these classes will need approval by the SPPS district, and may include current and past cohort participants, as well as others approved by the SPPS district. Typically, students with a current Minnesota K-12 principal license or director of special education license will need to complete these three courses to add the superintendent license.
