Required of and restricted to students in the School Leadership & Administration 2010 Cluster (Summer Sequence), and Experienced Educator M.Ed. Principal Certification students (Springfield 2010 Cluster) students.

Students will use this course to help develop the complex financial skills necessary to lead a school. Emphasis will be placed on directing resources in such a way that teaching and learning are privileged over more bureaucratic concerns. The course will include traditional methods of school budgeting and finance as well as exploring how leaders can marshal the outside resources so often necessary for schools today. In addition to your time in class, there will be a required on-line component for this course.
