Administrative Services Intern Credential

About the Credential

The Administrative Services Internship Credential Program allows school districts to appoint persons in administrative positions before they have completed the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential Program.

The position shall be for at least two-thirds of a school year. The intern is supervised by both the university staff and the school district in his/her position and continues the coursework at the university as required for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential.

The intern credential is usually issued for a two-year period thus the intern must complete the approved institutional credential program within a two year period or the period authorized on the intern credential.

Before an intern is appointed, the school district administration and university  representative shall review the intern program with a representative of the certificated exclusive bargaining unit if any, for the certificated employees in the credential area.
