Please note that all new administrative candidates must be registered on both sites. If you have any questions, please contact NJL2L at NJL2L@NJPSA.org or at 609-860-1200.


District Registration & Fees

  • School districts (hereafter, District) are required to register all individuals for the NJL2L Program who are newly hired into positions that require New Jersey Principal Certification (i.e. principal, vice/assistant principal, director, assistant director). These individuals must hold a Certificate of Eligibility for Principal and must complete the State-required two-year Residency for Standard Principal Certification.

    NOTE: A Current Job Description Must Be Provided at the Time of Registration along with the Statement of Assurance (attached), and Board of Education Minutes/Resolution prior to the Resident assignment with a Mentor. Please email all the documents to NJL2L@njpsa.org


  • The hiring district must register each new school leader online by clicking here and complete all required information for the online registration to be submitted. The District is responsible for the completeness and accuracy of all information.

  • Residents are responsible for payment of $850 (as of July 1, 2019) for the NJL2L registration fees in accordance with district policies and contracts.
