Elaboration on Working Together: A Collaborative Approach to University/School System Principalship Career Development.
Burnett, I. Emett, Jr.
In 1987, the Graduate School Center for Excellence in School Administration, at Xavier University of Louisiana, initated a program to stimulate interest in the Catholic school principalship and to enhance professional development among practicing school-site Catholic administrators. The curriculum, staff, and regular admission requirements are controlled by the graduate school, under the agreement that no student is to be admitted who is not currently employed in the schools of the Archdiocese and who has not been recommended by the Archdiocesan superintendent. The academic program consists of four 3-semester-hour graduate courses, three of which are already integral parts of the current master's program. Based upon student and departmental feedback, the program was restructured for the summer session of 1988. The program currently: (1) does not maintain a separate spiritual cohort group of classes; (2) requires a grade point average of 3.5 and a comprehensive exit exam for certification; (3) conducts special spiritual seminars; and (4) can be completed within 3 years of enrollment. A variety of transferable applications have arisen from the experience of this program. The future of American society depends upon the reformation of the American school system through university and school collaboration. (7 references) (KM)
