How Can a School District Launch a Meaningful Training Program for Its Administrative Staff?
Drachler, Norman
Contemporary social changes demand a new role for the educational administrator. Yet, responses to a recent poll of 50 large cities indicate that most school districts still depend on the traditional training by universities for administration. Of the 34 cities that replied, only one school district indicated signs of an ongoing program for administrative trainees. The development of an inservice training program for administrators should begin with the assumption that it is essential to direct administrators into new channels of endeavor through training and retraining of personnel. Retraining should be mandatory for all administrators in the field, and training for potential candidates in administration should be provided on a selective basis. Any program should include such issues as management by objectives, attitudes of teachers and administrators, paraprofessional training, developing performance objectives, school-community planning, and the use of technology.
