A Comprehensive Statewide School Improvement Staff Development Plan Utilizing Practitioners.
Seaberg, John J., Jr.; And Others
A description is given of the Oklahoma Leadership in Educational Administration (LEAD) project, a professional development program for state administrators which utilizes materials and methods developed by practitioners to meet needs brought about by state legislation for reform in education. The strength of the Oklahoma LEAD project lies in two areas: (1) the involvement of practitioners in the design of materials to be used by peers; and (2) the establishment of close working relationships with several groups in the state who deal with administrative preparation, certification, and professional development. Several instructional modules have been developed or are in the final stages of development. These include site-based school improvement, Oklahoma minimum criteria for effective teaching performance, supervision/evaluation, school discipline, student achievement, expectations, and research retrieval/application. The contents of the modules are outlined, and a brief overview of the LEAD project is presented. (JD)
