The Kansas State Department of Education issues a variety of School Leadership Licenses to qualified applicants. These include Building Leadership for school principals and District Leadership for superintendents.
Learn more about the graduate school process. Contact schools offering educational administration degree programs in Kansas.
If you wish to pursue a Building Leadership License, you must pass the Praxis II School Leaders Licensure Assessment. For a District Leadership License, you must pass the Praxis II School Superintendent Assessment.
Because you must already have a Kansas Professional Teaching License in order to apply for a school leadership license, you will already have undergone the criminal history background check. This includes fingerprinting. Licenses will not be issued without your background check first being cleared.
For information about school leadership programs at Kansas’s colleges and universities, contact the licensure officers at the institution that interests you.
