A Collaborative Model for Principal Selection.
Richardson, M. D.; And Others
Although the principal is critical for the success of the school and the school district, many school districts lack a structured and systematic means for identifying and selecting principals. This paper presents a collaborative model for principal selection, which is based on a valid job description, advertisement of the position, interview analysis, stress activity, and references. Implementation of this model in several Kentucky school systems indicates that the system is particularly effective in small, rural districts. A conclusion is that the system is useful in making valid, objective decisions in principal selection. (22 references) (LMI)
