Training Principals To Develop Comprehensive Early Childhood Programs: The Mississippi Model.
Grace, Cathy; Howard, Esther
In 1988, the Mississippi State Department of Education provided funds for the creation of a 40-hour staff development module for training the principals and central office staff of state accredited elementary schools to develop comprehensive early childhood programs. Here, the term 'early childhood' refers to programs for children between 5 and 8 years of age. This document describes the content of the training material in terms of phases of program development. Phases discussed concern: (1) definition and development of appropriate curriculum; (2) use of learning centers as an instructional setting; (3) use of assessment measures to stengthen a comprehensive early childhood program of instruction; and (4) development of a practical plan for implementing a comprehensive early childhood instructional program. It is anticipated that by 1990 over 200 administrators will have completed the training. An example of the action plan format suggested for use in Phase 4 is included. (RH)
