Inservice Activities Selected by School Administrators under an Individualized Statewide Incentive Program.
Broussard, Rolland L.
A study of participation in the Louisiana Educational Employees Professional Improvement Program (PIPS) by the administrators in two parish (county) school systems indicated that the program was very attractive and that a wide variety of university courses, workshops, conferences, and conventions were attended under the program. PIPS, made operational in July 1981, provides monetary incentives to educators who improve their skills or abilities while following a personally prepared 5-year plan of professional development involving both academic and inservice projects. The school systems studied were selected as representative of the systems in the state. Over 90 percent of the administrators in these two systems participated. Tables present the types of academic and inservice pursuits undertaken by principals, assistant principals, and central office administrators in each school system (as well as percentages of each type of administrator participating), the numbers of administrators pursuing college courses on campus or by extension, and sample listings of formal courses and inservice activities in which administrators typically participated.
