The charge to the Residencies and Internship Redesign Team is to develop draft criteria for the internship as part of the new approval criteria for principal preparation programs. Such internship criteria must: 1) integrate theory, research and practice by immersing candidates in administrative duties with the support of an accomplished mentor while at the same time engaging in rigorous coursework and, 2) develop and demonstrate candidates’ ability to improve student learning outcomes in schools by engaging the candidate in significant instructional leadership responsibilities and by regularly supervising and assessing the candidate by university-based personnel experienced in school leadership. The ideal internship would provide full day experiences over the course of one year. Working closely with the Assessment of Candidates and Graduates Redesign Team, the Residencies and Internship Redesign Team must include criteria for hands-on, practical leadership experience in which candidate performance would be meaningfully assessed.
