Supervisory Endorsement Program
Check Teacher Endorsement and fill in Supervisor on the application
Students who graduated on or after May 1999 from WPU with an M. Ed. in Reading or Education (concentrations: Bilingual/ESL, Early Childhood, Educational Media, Language Arts, Learning Technologies, Special Education, Social Studies. or Teaching Children Math) may now take the six additional credits in EDLP for certification as long as they completed the courses listed for that program (below). The courses completed must have had the same alpha and numeric listing as those on the control sheet. This endorsement is required for supervisors of instruction who do not hold a standard school administrator or principal endorsement. The supervisor shall be defined as any school officer who is charged with authority and responsibility for the continuing direction and guidance of the work of the instructional personnel. This endorsement also authorizes appointment as an "assistant superintendent in charge of curriculum and/or instruction.
If you are matriculated at WPUNJ and are currently taking courses towards the degrees listed above, you may take EDLP 604 and 609 after graduating. You may contact the Office of Graduate Studies for the appropriate application for an additional endorsement program. The Office of Certification will process your application for the supervisory endorsement.
