School districts, who recommend a qualified teacher for this program, give the teacher a one-year leave of absence in exchange for their commitment to serve as an administrator at the sponsoring school district for at least five years.
Candidates remain on the district’s payroll, and the district receives reimbursement from the State Department of Education for the salary equivalent of a teacher with five years experience. (If the teacher’s salary is higher than this, the district may elect to pay the difference.)
The sabbatical can be used to enable the candidate to participate in a one-year full-time internship under the supervision of an expert principal while completing coursework.
