A Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction is a district-wide specialist in curriculum and instruction across the total grade organization and is responsible for performing the following duties:

  • supervising instruction and evaluating staff as designated by the school superintendent;
  • designing and developing curriculum, learning materials and innovative educational programs;
  • conducting experimental instructional programs, and
  • directing and conducting basic or applied educational research.

Getting Certified

In addition to the academic requirements, the Pennsylvania Department of Education requires candidates to pass the Praxis 5411 - Educational Leadership: Administration and Supervision. After all academic requirements are met and passing scores from the Praxis are reported, the College of Education and Human Development will endorse the successful candidate for certification.

How to Apply

Applicants are initially admitted to our Educational Leadership and Policy MEd with a concentration in School Leadership.  After successfully completing the minimum requirements for certification, students may choose to leave the program with certification-only or may elect to continue in the program and complete the additional credit hours and requirements to receive certification and a master’s degree.
