Micro-Credentials:  Missouri's Introduction to an Alternative Path to Re-certification

With full implementation of the Missouri Leadership Development System (MLDS), we are now turning our attention to an alternate path for that career administrator certificate.

Currently, your four-year initial certificate can be granted with the completion of an approved master's degree. At the end of four years one can apply for a transition certificate that will last for an additional six years. By the end of ten years you must have earned an educational specialist degree or doctorate to receive the career certificate, or you will no longer be able to hold the job of principal.

Designed to align with the Missouri Leadership Development System (MLDS) MAESP, MoASSP and the Office of Educator Quality at DESE are partnering with the Education Leaders Network (ELN) to develop 15 micro-credentials (MCs). These MCs are 15 individual assessments covering the major components of the research based MLDS. These MCs are designed to offer a rigorous, yet viable alternative to obtaining an educational specialist degree and provide interested principals a different path to the career certificate. We are early in the process of development and have six of the fifteen written. Four are currently available to be piloted by principals in Missouri. We hope each MC will be piloted by 8-10 principals and then reviewed for appropriate rigor and clarity.
