The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Education is offering an 18-credit Online Graduate Certificate in School Administration and Supervision for school-district employed certified teachers and other certified personnel aspiring to become leaders in special education.
The year-long program combines five online courses offered in eight-week segments with a customized internship. The courses are fully facilitated and run on a rigorous, weekly cycle of instruction. Students communicate frequently online in the Center for Technology in Education's Electronic Learning Community using tools such as discussion forums, chat, and email. The program launches with a two week online orientation in late September. It continues for approximately one year, culminating with an internship. Participation in the online orientation is mandatory to complete the program.
The School Administration and Supervision for Special Education Leaders certificate may be taken as a stand-alone program, may be incorporated into the 39-credit master's degree in school administration and supervision, or may be combined with another graduate certificate program for a 33-39 credit master's degree in educational studies. (Please note that only the 18-credits included in cohort are guaranteed to be offered online. The remaining courses in the 39-credit master's degree in School Administration and Supervision are not offered online.)

"The JHU Administration and Supervision ISTE program challenged and inspired me in ways I could not have imagined! It provided a solid theoretical background in effective leadership, curriculum, and supervision, and was coupled with a tremendous internship opportunity that allowed me to put that theory into practice. Guided by thoughtful, professional, and caring instructors, as well as a strong partnership with ISTE that allowed many opportunities to explore and go deeper with my own unique interests, I have emerged from this program with strong educational leadership and technology skills, as well as a new position as a school administrator. I am honored to have been a part of this unique program and to call myself a graduate of the JHU A&S/ISTE certificate program."
