This course is designed to fulfill the internship requirements for a person seeking the Pennsylvania Letter of Eligibility certificate (school superintendent, K-12), the New Jersey certification, and for others seeking similar practical experiences. PA requires 360 hours of field experience. In order to be recommended for the Letter of Eligibility certificate, the student must complete two semesters of an Internship. During each semester the candidate should spend 120 hours beyond their regularly scheduled duties for a total of 240 hours (EDAD 9285 and EDAD 9286). These are each 3 semester hours. The remainder of the experience hours are found in the other courses and add up to an additional 120 hours. The internship serves as a bridge between university coursework and the world of professional practice in the school community. It helps aspiring leaders translate what they study into effective practices in an authentic work setting. The student engages in administrative work under the direction of an on-site mentor (an administrator or supervisor) in a school district either where the student is employed or in another district.
