The Center for Educational Leadership runs the Inspired Leaders Principal Licensure Program. This is a 22-credit (16 month) program, delivered primarily online with a face-to-face meeting the first Saturday of each course. The program is available to educators who have already completed a Master’s degree and have two years of experience teaching under a valid professional license. Upon completion of the program and passage of the Ohio Assessment for Educators, candidates receive endorsement from Cleveland State University for principal licensure from the Ohio Department of Education based on the age and grade levels of teaching experience.

To be endorsed for the principal license, the candidate must have at least two years of successful experience teaching or working under a pupil services license at the grade levels for which principal licensure is sought.
