This program equips students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to serve as Directors of Special Education and Pupil Services.
The program is an eight credit strand with courses in special education law, special education instructional leadership, and special education and pupil services program administration. By adding these eight credits, by affiliating students with special education
administrators as mentors, and by constructing applied special education/pupil services leadership experiences, students will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to serve as Directors of Special Education and Pupil Services. It is also aligned with the Wisconsin Administrator Standards (#10) and the Director of Special Education and Pupil Services (#80) Content Standards.
This program is available to graduates of our Master of Science in Educational Leadership program, as well as individuals holding a master's degree in leadership from another institution.
