Motion on New Course Sequence in Educational Administration Submitted by the Educational Administration Program faculty
The EPC approved the Educational Administration program faculty’s proposal to drop Ed 618 Finance and Facilities Management as a required course for Masters and CAES degrees in Educational Administration. In its place, Ed 619, Ethics and Equity in Education, will be reinstated as a required course for all Masters and CAES programs in Educational Administration.
Rationale: The Finance and Facilities course was taught from a school system perspective a well as a building perspective, reflecting the fact that it was required for Ph.D. students, many of whom would seek central office positions, as well as Masters and CAES students who were preparing for assistant principal or principal positions. Since we no longer have a Ph.D. program it no longer makes sense to include the emphasis on system budgeting. We will incorporate some of the building level budgeting content into Ed 451 Human Resource Administration by assigning two classes which address these topics. We will also increase the time spent on building level budgeting in Ed 617, The Principalship, whereby students will receive a thorough understanding of how budgets are built and implemented at the building level, and how a principal interacts with central office when the system budget is developed. We will continue to cover facilities issues from a building perspective as well. The title of Ed 451 will be changed to Managing Resources: Human, Financial, and Facilities. Ed 618 would remain in our list of courses for use with doctoral students.
