If you have the heart of a leader and the desire to be at the forefront of improving teaching quality and student learning, an initial certification in instructional leadership and administration from Troy University is the option to help progress your career! To be eligible for the Reduced Hour Option (RHO) program, potential candidates must possess a valid Class A Alabama Professional Educator certificate.
TROY’s instructional leadership and administration RHO program consists of 19 credit hours and focuses on the general principles and techniques needed in order to become an administrator at a wide variety of schools and other education organizations and facilities. This focus is designed to enhance school leadership among principals and administrators resulting in improved academic achievement for all students. Our experienced and knowledgeable faculty members are dedicated to providing you with the tools that will prepare you to be an innovative, informed and a reflective-decision maker.
Our instructional leadership and administration RHO program is offered in a variety of formats. As a student within our RHO program, you’ll have the option to attend face-to-face, in-class sessions, online courses or blended sessions that incorporate both in-class and online options.
As you work your way toward additional certification, you will participate in groups with other candidates from across Alabama. This will allow you to experience and learn how leadership works in a variety of school settings since no two school systems are the same. Guest lectures in class—as well as class meetings at P-12 schools—allow you an up-close and realistic look at elementary, middle and high schools. You will also have mentor and residency opportunities with the commitment from your local education association.
This program was developed corroboratively with K-12 partners to provide you with relevant content and experiences focused on student, faculty and staff outcomes. You’ll find your courses are related to the practice of sharing leadership at very high levels of expertise rather than focusing on observation and participation. Practical experiences are carefully planned and linked to central instructional problems that will serve to focus your research and problem-solving efforts.
Graduates who hold certification in instructional leadership and administration are qualified for the following positions:
