New Jersey State Requirement For All New Administrators Requiring a Principal Certificate
The NJ Leaders to Leaders program is the sole state-approved comprehensive mentoring and induction program for new school leaders.
Upon board approval for any position requiring a Standard Principal Certificate, newly hired administrators are required to obtain their Provisional Principal Certificate through the NJDOE’s Provisional Licensure Registration Management System and register for the NJ Leaders to Leaders program without delay. These positions may include Principal, Vice/Assistant Principal, Director, and Assistant Director; please note that supervisor positions and any position not requiring a Standard Principal Certificate are ineligible for the program. Interim and Acting positions are also not eligible.
(please see: N.J.A.C. 6A:9B-12.7)
After submitting the registration form for the NJL2L program, please also forward a copy of the administrator’s Statement of Assurance, BOE Minutes/Resolution, and the current job description for their position in order to approve their registration.
If you have any questions regarding the process or require additional assistance, please contact us at NJL2L@njpsa.org.
