Henderson's educational leadership programs earn national recognition

ARKADELPHIA -- Henderson State University's district-level educational leadership programs, including the Education Specialist in Educational Leadership leading to superintendent's license, have received national recognition from the Educational Leadership Constituent Council.

The ELCC is considered the Specialized Professional Association which manages educational leadership accreditation standards and the related review process. The review fulfills the accreditation requirements for the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation Program Review with national recognition.

Teachers College, Henderson is actively preparing for a campus visit from the CAEP in the spring. The results of the program review process are used as evidence of meeting CAEP standards.

Celya Taylor, dean and licensure officer for Teachers College said having nationally recognized, high-quality educational leadership programs positively impacts the overall CAEP accreditation process for the entire educator preparation program at Henderson. The Educational Leadership Program was previously coordinated by Bernie Hellums and is now coordinated by Judi Jenkins.

"Preparing program assessments and analyzing data for rigorous program review take time and collaboration," Taylor said. "Seeking and obtaining national recognition proves that Educational Leadership faculty and school-based candidate mentors are committed to designing, implementing and continuously improving preparation of effective school leaders who are capable of solving problems and making student-focused decisions."

Henderson's online leadership programs include an Ed.S. and Licensure for district-level leadership, an Ed.S. for curriculum leadership, a licensure for curriculum program administrator, a Master of Science in Education and licensure for building-level leadership and an M.S.E. for educational technology leadership.
