Teachers Advance Career Paths Through On-site Learning

Wilmington University is bringing Master in School Leadership education to teachers in two school districts this fall.

This innovative partnership allows teachers at Appoquinimink and Colonial school districts to earn advanced degrees at their sites by taking one course per block, says Dr. Joseph A. Massare, who chairs School Leadership in the College of Education and Liberal Arts. The instructors will be various district administrators who customize the courses through the Canvas platform. That structure allows instructors and candidates to address and resolve local district issues as part of the degree program.

The school districts will pay fees for supplemental materials. Tuition reimbursements are available to the teachers. In addition, participating districts will offer a priority for teachers completing this degree to advance their careers by interviewing for administrative positions.

The Appoquinimink School District will have two cohorts of almost 40 teachers, and the Colonial School District will have one cohort of about 20 teachers. The goal is to extend the program to other Delaware school districts soon.
