Developing High Quality and Diverse Pathway Leading Toward NH Licensure as a Special Education Administrator


In the past two years, the NH Association of Special Education Administrators (NHASEA) has invested heavy resources into a Pathway leading toward licensure as a NH Special Education Administrator.  Using the New Hampshire Department of Education’s rules for Administrator Certification and the competencies for Special Education Administrator, the NHASEA worked in collaboration with the NHED Bureaus of Credentialing and Special Education along with Keene State College in the development of the Pathway.  In New Hampshire, a big challenge is the shortage of licensed Special Education Administrators, both recruiting and retaining.

This NHASEA Pathway is a program designed to address the Special Education Administrator competencies and typically targets those who hold leadership positions in the field of Special Education Administration (at the SAU office and building level).  Participants are brought into the Pathway once the NHED Bureau of Credentialing has issued a Statement of Eligibility (SOE) and an approved a site-based plan for Special Education Administrator licensure.  The Pathway includes, hybrid modules, on-site mentorship, facilitator for the modules, hands-on special Education Administration experiences, networking with colleagues in the Pathway and support from the NHASEA.

The Pathway is being rolled out beginning in July 2023 with the goal of growing and diversifying a highly qualified Special Education Administrator Pipeline.
