Advanced Certificate in School District Business Leader
This program is designed for educators who are preparing for positions as public school district business leaders (deputy superintendent of schools for business, associate superintendent of schools for business, assistant superintendent of schools for business, and any other person having professional responsibility for the business operation of the school district). The program offers two options. The first is a 38-credit program for applicants who have not completed an approved administrative certification program. The second, a 15-credit program, is for applicants who currently hold administrative certification as school district leader. The Advanced Certificate qualifies students for the New York State School District Business Leader (SDBL) certification. The goal of the program is to prepare flexible, visionary and reflective leaders with the skills necessary to create and sustain financial and operational functions within a school district that will support and enhance the quality of learning for all students.
