CSED 570 - The Administrator and Pupil Personnel Services
The fundamental role of the Pupil Personnel Administrator is to ensure that optimum teaching and learning conditions are provided for all students. This course is a survey course which provides the necessary background and basic understandings of pupil personnel services to equip the candidate with the specific skills needed to implement, supervise, and evaluate those legally required services that enable students to benefit from the instructional program. Working independently and in groups, candidates will have the opportunity to become familiar with the mandated deliverance of pupil personnel services in New York State. Candidates will learn the “language” of pupil personnel services as related to special education, academic intervention services, testing and assessments, nursing, psychology, social work, and guidance services. Candidates will identify their own administrative skills and demonstrate these skills through class presentations. Candidates will continue to revise their comprehensive examination study guide.
Topics include: role of the administrator, mandated delivery mechanisms and the “language” of PPS as it relates to special education, academic intervention services, curriculum development, counseling services, state mandates/testing, and any other area pertinent to the needs and interest of the candidates.
10 hours of administrative fieldwork are required
