ExSL Track to School Leadership
The Executive School Leadership Track (ExSL) is a two-year part-time program, with flexibility to meet individual student timing needs.
The ExSL Track
Is designed to accommodate individuals who are working full time and wish to complete a Master’s of Education Degree, thus becoming eligible for a Utah Administrative License
Provides the opportunity and the flexibility to enable students to design their path to school leadership
The ExSL Track is designed to be completed in two school years, with students attending classes part time.
However, students who choose to take more than a part-time course load may be able to finish in three to four semesters (one year). Students can also choose to spread out their coursework (five-year limit). The ExSL Track begins during summer term (last week of June). With courseload options ranging from one to five years, students can choose a flexible schedule that works for their individual needs.
The ExSL Host-District Model,an important component of the ExSL Track, builds on the foundation of the BYU-Public School Partnership. The ExSL Track administrators work with the Partnership districts in negotiating and facilitating a Host District Cohort Model that aligns with the desires of both the EDLF Department and the district to develop leaders with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be able and willing to administer schools to improve student learning.
The ExSL Track facilitates the completion of the state-required 450-hour administrative internship, including elementary, secondary and district level experience. Students work with the program chair and the ExSL internship coordinator to design flexible and effective administrative internship experiences. Students will be placed as administrative interns in approved schools with approved mentor principals.
