If you plan to become an administrator, principal or superintendent in the Alaska public school system, you will need a Type B Administrative Certificate.
Learn more about the graduate school process. Contact schools offering educational administration degree programs in Alaska.
The Type B Administrative Certificate does not require additional examinations to be passed beyond the Praxis I and II, which you have already passed to obtain Alaska teacher certification.
To qualify for the Type B Administrative Certificate, you need verification of three years of full-time certified teaching experience. If you are applying for the extra Superintendent endorsement, you must have five years of full-time certified teaching experience, and one year of full-time certified experience as an administrator.
