Hawaii wants non-traditional school administrators
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii is recruiting more applicants for its program to groom people with business, military and other non-education backgrounds to become public school administrators.
The state Department of Education said Wednesday candidates should have a master’s degree and have successfully served in a leadership, supervisory, or managerial position for three or more years.
Candidates must complete training sessions, seven university courses, a probation period and a one year residency to become certified school administrators.
Candidates may apply for vacant vice principal positions at the end of the residency year.
The program is funded by the federal government’s Race to the Top grant. Hawaii’s program began last year with six candidates.
Chaminade University helps run the program. The school will host information sessions in Honolulu this month for those interested.
