Those Who Would Be Catholic School Principals: Their Recruitment, Preparation, and Evaluation.
Manno, Bruno V.
This booklet is produced by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) for sponsors of programs that prepare people for the principalship of Catholic schools: archdioceses and dioceses, colleges and universities, and religious orders. After a brief introduction that describes recent changes in the ecclesiastical and organizational context of the Catholic school principalship, the first chapter recommends procedures for use in recruiting qualified program applicants and provides a list of required qualities and competencies. It also suggests procedures for screening and assessing qualified applicants, interviewing them, and making a decision. The second chapter lists curricular topics and NCEA resources for a Catholic principals' training program, and discusses various approaches to teaching and learning. The third chapter presents a policy and design for evaluation of both the candidate and the training program itself. The conclusion briefly discusses five additional items of concern for sponsors of a Catholic principals' preparation program: record keeping, resources (both material and human), participant recognition, participant placement, and geographical and financial accessibility. An appendix lists graduate programs in private/Catholic school administration at Catholic colleges and universities. (TE)
