Developing the Department Head Role--From Colleague to Leader.
McLean, William J.
This paper discusses the training of department heads to be administrators. Some of the suggestions discussed are to increase their pay and time to do the job, let them share in decision-making, provide specialized training, and expose them to all levels of administration. The paper concludes that many good principals do not achieve their potential because they fail to recognize and enhance the role of department heads in their schools. (Author/LD)
