Training Needs of Public School Administrators. A Survey of Local School Districts. Fast Response Survey System Report No. 5.
Goor, Jeanette; Farris, Elizabeth
This report presents the findings of a fast response survey of school administrator training needs and programs as perceived by school districts. The nationwide survey, conducted in the summer of 1978, had three objectives: to assess the degree of need for expanded or improved training opportunities in 14 areas, to indicate preferred methods for providing this training, and to evaluate current training methods according to relevance of course content and quality of instruction. The findings, which represent the views of school district superintendents, revealed that public school administrators perceive a need for expanded or improved training opportunities. Over half the districts felt the state inservice programs could provide the needed training, and they rated the current training methods as adequate or better. However, a substantial number of districts called for major improvement in existing administrative training programs. (Author/LD)
