Review of State Standards for the Initial Certification of Administrators and Supervisors.
Feldvebel, Alexander M.
Requests for administrator certification standards mailed to state directors of teacher education and certification produced replies from all states except Connecticut and Nevada. To handle the responses, a data collection framework was established that would allow for relatively easy comparisons among states of certification standards for principals, supervisors, and superintendents. Data are presented in eight categories for analysis: (1) type and duration of the initial certificate, (2) accreditation or program approval prerequisites, (3) teaching experience and degree prerequisites, (4) course/competency requirements for the program, (5) alternative plans, (6) certificate renewal provisions, (7) upgraded certificates, and (8) projected changes in certification standards. The raw data compiled for each state are grouped into tables, calling attention to the most salient characteristics. In addition each section of the report contains a paragraph entitled "observations." Appendices provide complete statements from three professional organizations outlining their recommendations and/or standards for programs that prepare educational administrators and supervisors.
