The internship is competency-based following the national Educational Leadership Consortium Council (ELCC) and Pennsylvania State standards. It constitutes 90 clock hours in a district office setting on a part-time basis. The internship is completed in a different semester than the practicum and may be started upon completion of three (3) district level preparation EDL courses. The internship provides significant opportunities in the workplace to synthesize and apply the knowledge acquired during the coursework, and to practice and develop the skills identified in the academic program. It requires a variety of substantial school district experiences over an extended period of time in diverse settings. The internship is planned cooperatively with the on-site district office supervisor, and supervised by university and school district personnel.
