Organizing and Expanding the Individualized Continuing Education Program for Administrators in the Local School District. An Occasional Paper.
Dillon, Elizabeth A.; And Others
In the rapidly changing educational scene, a school administrator is frequently forced to abandon old responsibilities and assume new ones. Often, yesterday's top priorities are suddenly replaced by others more relevant to constantly shifting educational demands. In order to manage school improvements, administrators face the continuous need for acquiring new abilities. To perpetuate effective leadership a school district must provide a program whereby each of its administrators has an opportunity to participate in an individualized and continuous program of self-renewal. This paper reports the results of an individualized continuing education, and school climate improvement program for school administrators. It is addressed to superintendents, principals, area superintendents, coordinators, assistant superintendents, and others interested in self-, and school improvement processes. It is also designed for school administrators responsible for developing inservice education or administrative renewal programs for school district leadership personnel. (Author/WM)
