Report of the Program for the Development of the Elementary School Principal as an Educational Leader. Princeps Series: Developing the Role of the Elementary School Principal as an Educational Leader. Occasional Paper No. 5.
Burnes, Judith Crooks; And Others
This report summarizes and draws implications from a two-year pilot program in which 12 elementary school principals received training designed to help them become more effective leaders in their own school settings. The goal of the program was to enable participating principals to define and enact the leadership roles best suited to their particular leadership styles, the needs of their schools, and the concept of the educational leader as a humanistic change agent. In addition, the program was intended to provide data relevant to the selection and training of principals and to study the leadership functions and personal competencies necessary for the creation of an effective elementary school. Individual chapters of the report discuss the program design, competence and growth of participating principals, change in the participating schools, an analysis of training activities, and various implications and recommendations resulting from the program.
