LBUSD and San Diego State University (SDSU) have partnered to prepare candidates for the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential and/or a Master’s in PK-12 Educational Leadership. The credential only option is available for those who already hold a Master’s Degree. The MA in PK-12 Educational Leadership requires students to complete coursework required for the administrative credential, plus nine additional units related to research and the completion of an action research project. Courses are taught by LBUSD Faculty and SDSU Professors, and are a hybrid of in-person and on-line classes. Any in-person classes will be held in Long Beach.
