Special Education Leadership Certificate

Completing a Concentration in Special Education Leadership

Special education has become a complicated field with many new approaches, eligibility guidelines and policy implications for students, teachers, schools and districts. Supervising and supporting special education programs and services requires additional leadership preparation. Thus, the need for leaders to be skilled in special education continues to grow.

Putnam/Northern Westchester BOCES and Bank Street College of Education are collaborating to provide a Special Education Leadership Program online leading to a Certificate of Completion. Together we share a strong commitment to excellence and equity in education for all children and an inquiry approach to improve the quality and effectiveness of our schools.

This program provides a strong up to date foundation in special education leadership through a nine-credit online course experience. The program is designed to supplement an SDL or SBL certificate and to prepare candidates for special education leadership roles in schools and districts.
