CAGS in Educational Leadership and Management (National Institute for School Leadership/NISL)

Under Construction:

We are currently revising our Educational Leadership and Management Programs for submission to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for state approval. This revised program will meet the new Education Leadership Standards and will prepare educator administrators for the rigorous demands of leading today’s schools. New candidates and those currently in admissions will come into the new and improved program. This will be a cohort model with an anticipated start semester of fall 2014.

Current non-licensure matriculated candidates will complete the current program.

Since 2005 the National Institute for School Leadership (NISL) executive development program has been implemented through cohort groups of Massachusetts public school educators and leaders as an administrative leadership program with a special focus on the principal. In fact, dozens of administrators across the state have been NISL trained in this program that is both supported and guided by the Massachusetts Department of Education.

Fitchburg State University has a long and distinguished history in offering nationally recognized and accredited graduate programs in school leadership. Fitchburg State University announces a new and exciting program designed specifically for the NISL candidates who wish to pursue a graduate degree. The program has been developed in recognition of the rigorous coursework contained in the NISL program and its alignment with Fitchburg State University’s Educational Leadership and Management (EDLM) program objectives. Candidates can apply for the MEd or CAGS degree and receive 16 EDLM graduate program credits for a reduced tuition.
