The Development of a Training Program to Improve the Supervisory Competence of Newington Public School Administrators, and Appendix A: Manual of Activities Used for the Improvement of Supervisory Skills.
Ward, William P.
The purpose of the practicum was to improve specific supervisory skills of the administrators in the Newington (Connecticut) public schools. The practicum was also intended to increase the amount of time spent by administrators in various categories of supervisory activities. Treatment included administrative focusing efforts, a planned and sequenced series of inservice activities, and regular reinforcement by the chief district administrator. Evaluation indicates improvement in supervisory skills, greater amount of time spent on supervisory activities, and greater acceptance of supervision by professional staff. The school district now provides a cadre of skilled administrators who can teach supervisory skills locally or regionally. An appendix contains the activities used in the training program.
