The Catholic School Principal: An Outline for Action (Revised).
Drahmann, Theodore; Stenger, Amelia
Over the past several years, the role of the Catholic school principal has expanded to include many new tasks that principals of earlier generations never even considered. Today principals need a procedure that will help them recall their many responsibilities, to help them place these in priority, and to give them some sense of accomplishing these tasks. Such are the purposes of this publication. This program, designed for the distinctive training of Catholic school administrators, is grouped into chapters under the headings: "The Principal as Religious Leader,""The Principal as Educational Leader," and "The Principal as Manager." Each of these sections contains a description of the relevant responsibilities and an exhaustive checklist that covers the areas of administrative action, policies and decisions of the supervisory body, a faculty handbook, a parent/student handbook, resources, and issues. A new feature of this revised publication is a year-long calendar that enables the principal to plan for certain quarterly activities throughout the year. All the references have been updated to eliminate those no longer in print and to incorporate those just printed. Emerging issues are also addressed. (KM)
