Is the Online Supervisor Certification program right for you? You may want to discuss your future career options with me before enrolling in any program. Remember, for all your graduate work select a New Jersey school and never go out-of-state!

This program meets the requirements specified by the state of New Jersey and is designed to serve the person who has already earned a Master’s degree in some field and who wants to qualify as a supervisor in the public schools; one who is charged with authority and responsibility for the continuing direction and guidance of the work of instructional personnel. 

The Supervisor Certification program is intended for public school teachers or administrators who wish to earn additional administrative credentials in their field.  The Supervisor Certification program is a part of the New Jersey Teacher Outreach Program (NJTOP) and is offered to NJ educators at a discount off of regular Rowan rates.
