A Resource Guide To Assist Local Schools Support Beginning Administrators.
Daresh, John C.; Playko, Marsha A.
To ensure that first-time educators in any of Ohio's 615 school systems have access to a supportive environment that would make their professional success more likely, in 1987 the state's Department of Education enacted a policy requiring all school districts to plan and implement programs that provide support to newly employed educators. Because no single "Entry Year Model" was mandated for adoption across the state, and because little direction was provided to school districts regarding the precise nature of the Entry Year Program, the project naturally became an activity of the Ohio Leadership in Educational Administration Development Center. To date, work related to the Entry Year Standard has revolved around two specific areas. First, a resource guide, which is summarized within this document, was developed containing nine chapters, each directed toward an important element of the standard to assist those persons responsible for the implementation of the program in the state's local school systems. And second, training activities designed to enable people to learn more about the concept of mentoring for beginning principals--a significant part of the Entry Year Standard--are being conducted around the state during this present year. The Ohio Entry Year Standard is appended. (KM)
