The District Leadership Program is a 21 credit hour programthat allows an individual to obtain a district-level license to lead a school district in the state of Kansas. This program provides an opportunity for persons who currently hold a Kansas professional building leadership license to participate in advanced graduate training that leads to positions as a Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, or Special Education Director. Throughout the state of Kansas, there are many completers of this Wichita State program who are working in these roles.
In addition to the prescribed coursework of five seminars and a year-long internship working with a practicing professional, candidates must take and submit a passing score on the School Superintendent Assessment (SSA). The SSA is based on-ISLLC standards regarding knowledge, performance, and dispositions necessary for a district-level school leadership position.
