Administrator In-Service Education: Structure and Analysis of an Individualized Statewide Incentive Program.
Broussard, Rolland L.
The Louisiana Educational Employees Professional Improvement Program (PIPS) is an individualized, incentive-based, statewide, inservice development program for school administrators and teachers. This presentation describes PIPS and analyzes it according to recommended models for the development and implementation of inservice programs for school administrators. All potential participants must submit for approval by the local committee a five-year plan (containing five one-year components) of professional development and improvement. The plan must consist of both academic and inservice pursuits. Participants in the program receive salary increments based on years of experience and educational attainment. The enhanced salary becomes effective at the onset of the five-year plan and ranges from approximately $1,100 to more than $3,700 per year. The program is deemed to be significant in stimulating the continuing professional development of school personnel because (1) it is a relatively comprehensive staff development program; (2) a substantial amount of professional input from personnel preceded its implementation; (3) the five-year plans are to be based on individual planning; (4) the state has funded the program at the substantial level of $63 million; and (5) "controlling boards" are at the state and local level.
