Planning the Elementary Principal's Year, or An Attempt to Keep Everyone Happy. ACSA Operations Notebook 27.
This operations notebook is designed to assist elementary (and/or secondary) school principals in planning their school schedule, month by month, based on six major areas of administrative competency: (1) instructional leadership, (2) management, (3) human relations, (4) leadership, (5) political and cultural awareness, and (6) self-awareness. The format consists of monthly checklists of activities, from July to June, categorized according to the first four of these areas each month: curriculum and instruction, management, human relations, and leadership. Within each category, the various activities are listed according to the demands of a principal's respective constituencies: students, staff, parents/community, district, and other agencies. Activities to complement the last two competencies--political/cultural and self-awareness--are not required in specific months, so they have been listed on year-long calendars at the end of the monthly checklists. Appendixes provide (1) samples of various forms mentioned throughout, (2) a complete breakdown of administrative competencies, (3) a bibliography, (4) a personal activity plan, and (5) time management materials.
