Prepare for leadership in SPED programs and services

Earn an endorsement online that qualifies you to supervise special education within a school and meets requirements for Administrative and Supervisory Certification in Nebraska. Because professionals in this area are in high demand, Nebraska Department of Education funding rules allow the use of federal special education funds to reimburse part of a SPED administrator’s salary. Gain the credentials and expertise to become a leader for students, teachers, and your school while advancing your career in education.

Prerequisites: TE 805P - Overview of Assistive Technology; TESE 876P - Transitional Issues for Individuals with Disabilities; master’s degree in education or related field, OR an Education Specialist degree

Courses you have completed at any time during your previous education may be eligible to transfer toward the endorsement program. With additional courses, this online endorsement is also available as an online master's degree in Educational Administration: Supervisor of Special Education. Students pursuing certification in states other than Nebraska must check with their State Department of Education for certification requirements.
