Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership Assessment
The Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment is designed for educational leaders (principals/assistant principals and superintendents/assistant superintendents). It focuses on scenarios that educational leaders might encounter within the school, or amongst colleagues and other school administrators.
The assessment ensures that educational leadership candidates know and can apply the Georgia Code of Ethics and ethical principles to guide decision making. Educator leader preparation programs must first instruct and assess candidates in the Georgia Code of Ethics and ethical understanding to guide decision making before granting them eligibility to take the Program Exit version of the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership. Data from the end-of-program assessment informs program providers' ethics instruction as they work to enhance programs where needed.
Who Needs to Take This Assessment and When?
- All candidates admitted (enrolled and taking classes) to any GaPSC-approved Educational Leadership program (non-tiered program or the new tiered model) on or after July 1, 2016, must pass the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment prior to becoming enrolled.
