This is a two-term 300-hour supervised practicum in a school setting under the guidance of a cooperating practitioner. This practicum allows the development of administrator competencies specific to the principal/assistant principal position at the middle school level. The practicum provides opportunity for experienced professionals to become fully immersed in examining how theory and practice interact in school administration at the school level and its relationship to and impact on district, school, and classroom policies and practices. Attendance at four seminar sessions is required during the practicum. The seminars, combined with the field experience, focus on current issues in the students' practicum sites and specifically on issues of the principalship.
