EEPP is a partnership between Region 10 and the University of North Texas, providing classwork and preparation for a Superintendent's Certification.
2014 was the first cohort and consisted of 14 students; the 2018 cohort had 16 members.
The University of North Texas provides the classroom portion of the following classes:
- Applied Theory and Research in Administration
- Seminar in Advanced Education Law
- Public School Finance, Business Management and Facilities
- The Superintendency
Region 10 supervises the Internship portion of the program. This consists of 7 assignments:
- Human Resources
- Budget Building
- Special Populations and Special Services
- School Board
- Curriculum and Instruction
- Business Office
At the conclusion of one year, when all the courses and the internship are completed, students will be eligible to take the Superintendent's Exam. Students may apply the hours gained through these courses towards a doctorate at UNT.
Region 10 and UNT have engaged with two corporate sponsors to support the program and participants.
First Financial will provide scholarships to all participants in the amount of $300 per UNT course.
TCG Group Holdings will provide an $800 grant to all participants, which will offset a portion of the cost of the internship.
