Providing Professional Induction Services for Beginning School Administrators.
Holifield, Mitchell L.; King, Dan L.
This paper offers a summary of research on the professional induction needs of beginning school administrators and a report on a professional induction project conducted by Arkansas State University. The project initiation process: (1) identified and interviewed newly practicing school administrators in 25 Arkansas counties; (2) determined their inservice needs and interests; and (3) prepared a program plan to meet those needs. Interviews conducted with 59 beginning administrators at varying levels led to the development of the Association for the Enhancement of School Administration, a response vehicle designed to provide professional growth opportunities to all individuals interested in educational administration. The association's goals and activities are outlined. (LMI)
