The Principal Preparation and Certification Program (PPCP) provides an alternative to the traditional certification path for ESC Region 12 customers. Educators who enter this program must possess a Master’s degree and have completed at least two years of creditable teaching experience.

Candidates are prepared to be campus-level administrators by participating in classroom presentations conducted by local experts in various areas of education, working with a veteran mentor, and by being exposed to a wide variety of field-based experiences in campus administration.

Benefits include:

  • Development of professional relationships with cohort members in other districts
  • Face-to-face contact with experts in all fields related to administrative roles
  • Opportunities to network with aspiring and current administrators
  • Preparation for successful completion of TExES
  • Mentoring by program directors during and after the completion of the program
