The principal track prepares candidates to meet the WELS principal standards. Leadership courses focus on servant leadership, vision, planning, communication, and relationships. Administration courses develop skills in management, budgeting, school safety, and outreach. Instructional Supervision courses enable the principal to monitor and develop high quality curriculum and instruction. Practical Application is embedded throughout the entire program, but is especially integrated into the research, field project, or internship components.
