The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction issues administrator licenses in Educational Leadership for those who wish to pursue administration positions in North Dakota schools. Credentials are available at the Elementary and Secondary level (i.e., for Principals) and at the Superintendent level.
Learn more about the graduate school process. Contact schools offering educational administration degree programs in North Dakota.
No examinations are required for administrative licenses and credentials in North Dakota. However, since all positions require that you first have a teaching license, it is assumed that you have passed the Praxis I Basic Skills exam and the Praxis II exam for your area of licensure.
For all of these credentials, you must have at least three years of teaching or administrative experience (or a combination thereof) in North Dakota schools under an active North Dakota educator’s license.
Additionally, to receive the Professional Superintendent Credential, you must have two more years of administrative experience in North Dakota schools as an elementary or secondary principal, a central office administrator, or an administrator of an approved school with a 12-year program; along with field experience (internship) as a superintendent.
Mail all of the above documents to North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, Teacher and School Effectiveness, 600 East Boulevard Ave., Dept. 201 Bismarck, ND 58505-0440.
Because you already hold a North Dakota teaching license, you should already have undergone a criminal history background check and fingerprinting.
