Timeline and Training

The TSCI program is formatted as 10 on-site sessions (approximately once per month). Each module requires an opening on-site session and a closing on-site session over the course of two Saturday meetings; the remaining coursework is completed conveniently online, and includes interaction with the other participants and the course facilitator. Additional pertinent training and professional development activities will be offered on weekends and/or week days during the summer. You can begin TSCI at the start of any scheduled module; apply now and you can be pursuing your superintendent certification within the next 6-8 weeks!
