Selecting the Administrative Team. The Administrative Team Career Development Series, Book 1.
American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
As an aid for school district and building administrators, this handbook recommends ways to recruit, select, and employ new administrative personnel. Its information was gathered from members of the American Association of School Administrators, professional associations' leaders, and a literature survey. Following a brief introduction, the first chapter discusses planning the selection process, including reviewing board hiring policies (especially concerning women administrators and hiring from within) and establishing needs, a timetable, an organizational chart, responsibilities, and contract provisions. Chapter 2 offers suggestions on candidate recruitment, involving recruiting materials, job descriptions, application forms, and position announcements. Chapter 3 examines the selection process and discusses processing and screening applications, preparing for and conducting interviews, choosing finalists, and making the final selection. Steps in employing the new administrator are outlined in chapter 4, including seeking board approval, signing the contract, announcing the appointment, and closing out applicant files. Chapter 5 provides recruitment information, qualifications, relevant professional organizations, and sample job descriptions for 16 types of administrative positions, including the areas of personnel, communications, business, research, government programs, curriculum, and principals. Eight appendices present sample board policies, organizational charts, and information forms, as well as laws, regulations, and guidelines on hiring practices. (RW)
