A question and answer session will follow the conversation, “Connecticut at the Crossroads: A Discussion About the Future of Public Education.” The event will take place on Tuesday, April 24, at 6 p.m. at the Martire Business & Communications Center Forum, 5401 Park Avenue, Fairfield.
Sacred Heart University is getting into the business of creating school superintendents. The state Board of Education this week gave unanimous approval to a program that will allow existing school administrators to train for top district leadership roles. The one-year, 15-credit program will start this fall, with an expected enrollment of 15 to 18. It will leave participants with an “093” certificate which is required in Connecticut to be a schools superintendent. The program requires no exit test.
Sacred Heart University will launch a state certification program for aspiring school superintendents (093) this fall. Candidates who complete the course requirements will earn a sixth-year diploma upon graduation. David G. Title, assistant professor in the Education Leadership and Literacy Department, will be the program director. Title will teach two courses and also oversee all aspects of the certification path. “The program’s goal is to ensure that every candidate acquires the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful superintendent of schools upon completion,” he explains.
