Advance Your Teaching Career into a Leadership Role

The Teacher-Leader Endorsement builds on our tradition of offering quality educator preparation and leadership programs. It is structured to complement our other education leadership programs – Principals’ License, Administrative Specialist License and Superintendent License – enabling you to earn multiple credentials by taking relatively few courses.

This endorsement fulfills a required credential in moving to the top tier in ODE’s four-tiered licensure system (www.ode.state.oh.us).
