A course set July 5 through 9 on the Montana State University campus is focused on school principals and superintendents who would like to learn about Montana school law.

Participants will earn three graduate credits while studying law and court decisions relative to the administration of K-12 schools with a specific emphasis on Montana-related cases. The course is taught by faculty from MSU's Educational Leadership program with support from practicing attorneys from Billings, Missoula and Great Falls.

Montana administrators can use the course for professional development. The course can be used to meet the requirement for Montana certification for principals and superintendents who are licensed in another state.

The course is offered as a joint effort between the Educational Leadership programs at MSU and the University of Montana. The two campuses will alternate hosting the course each year.
