Abstract: To meet student needs, flexible education programs need to be developed. One type of flexible program is a competency-based program, which allows students to consider prior knowledge and focus on the skills and knowledge needed for specific employment. A competency-based program was developed for students to earn a Texas Superintendent certification. This paper will discuss the development of that course and examine the curriculum and instructional strategies employed.
