Principals Inservice Program.
As the most significant change agents in the school setting, principals must reestablish their educational leadership in order to effect significant program improvements. The Principals Inservice Program is designed to provide a continuous process of professional development. This approach is in contrast to the typical inservice program which consists of a smattering of unrelated activities that promote an awareness that is never put to practical use. The Principals Inservice Program has three phases. First, professional development is oriented around identification and pursuit of personal goals. A collegial support group helps the principal in this effort. Second, the leadership abilities developed in the first phase are applied to a practical improvement project in the principal's own school. Finally, the principal's experience is assessed and preparations are made to begin again with the first phase. (Author/PGD)
