Project SAFE [Survey of Administrative Functional Efficiency]. A Feedback Project Designed to Assist Principals.
After a brief explanation of Project SAFE (Survey of Administrative Functional Efficiency) as a system designed to provide necessary feedback to school principals, the author lists the components of the project: (1) a confidential report to the principal summarizing the results of administering the SAFE instrument in the school, (2) a profile of the staff's view of the ideal principal and how the participating principal compared to it, and (3) feedback on how teachers might attempt to improve selected situations at the school. The author then lists dissertations completed as Project SAFE research and their findings. The research concerns the relationship between the administrative functioning of principals and other variables such as demographic variables and desired personality traits. One study found significant personality trait predictors of principals' efficiency for eight different principal functions. Another examined the impact of a communications and leadership training program on teachers' views of ideal principal personality traits and found no effects. (Author/JM)
