Doane's Education Specialist program, an advanced academic degree, prepares candidates to be leaders at the organization or systems levels of school districts, social service agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and other organizations engaged in the service of others. 

Completion of the Ed.S. program leads to Nebraska administrative certification as a superintendent or to other district-level leadership positions requiring certification beyond the principalship.

Our primary focus are the roles of leaders at the head of organizations and especially the role of the superintendent  of schools. We also will support the development of leaders roles and positions that are part of the organization’s leadership team.
