Standards for Quality Elementary Schools, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
National Association of Elementary School Principals, Alexandria, VA.
This document states the position of the National Association of Elementary School Principals regarding the essential ingredients of a fine elementary or middle school. It combines the findings of current research on effective schooling with the practical, onsite experience of working principals. After a brief introduction, these standards are grouped into seven major categories: organization, leadership, curriculum, instruction, training and development, school climate, and evaluation and assessment. Contained within these 7 categories are 21 "standards of excellence," each accompanied by a number of "quality indicators" useful for assessing the extent to which a particular standard is being met. Appendixes provide (1) a checklist for assessing the extent to which a particular school meets these standards, and (2) a guide for developing a school improvement plan. (TE)
