EA 580 - Practicum in Special Education Administrator

The practicum in Special Education Administrator consists of 500 clock hours of leadership in a variety of settings with a diversity of students. All candidates in the practicum experience are in the field for one to two consecutive semesters. Candidates are encouraged to experience a clinical practicum in elementary and secondary schools in urban and suburban settings. Additionally, candidates are required to have a portion of their experience with a diversity of disabled learners. Candidates should experience inclusive general education and separate or substantially separate setting for students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities. Endicott College is pleased to partner with a variety of local and regional schools and agencies. The knowledge and experience and of our partners plays a key role in the development of our leadership candidates. In providing the pre-practicum and practicum settings for candidates our partners provide a practical laboratory that connects theory and practice. Candidates are assigned an array of standards based activities (see Activities for Administrative Standards, 2013) that are useful to the districts and agencies and instructive to the candidates. The practicum is supervised jointly by the College-appointed Supervisor (Program Supervisor) and a supervising Cooperating Administrator (Supervising Practitioner), both of whom regularly observe the candidate’s performance.
