The Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Administration Certificate provides teacher leaders, school leaders, and district administrators with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement successful DLI programs in schools. The overall objective of the program is to provide DLI professional development for individuals that are considering implementing a DLI program, currently leading a DLI program, and/or may be planning to assess DLI programs in schools and districts. Specifically candidates who successfully complete the certificate will have a broad-based knowledge of how to educate an increasingly linguistically diverse student population.
Candidates for the DLI Administration Certificate should have a master’s degree and demonstrate three years of successful school leadership experience. Candidates with licensure in administration or supervision licensure are preferred. The certificate is a standalone program; however, students admitted to the Educational Specialist in Educational Administration (EDS) program may complete the courses as a concentration.
