Practical Guide for the School Principal: A Methodological Guide to Educational Administration and Management for the Training of Primary School Principals. Revised.
Valerien, Jean
Written with regard to the cultural context of French-speaking African countries, this document begins by describing the administrative role of the school principal. Questions related to each of 56 key words associated with educational administration are offered, and the limitations and freedom provided by administrative regulations is discussed. Next, the principal's role in the educational community is explored through an examination of the principal's role in four areas: (1) management and administration; (2) leadership and training; (3) evaluation and control; and (4) public relations. Included is information on leadership styles; decision making; delegation; staff meetings; the supervision of replacements and of new or inexperienced teachers; monitoring student, class, and school results; examination results; the control and evaluation of teachers; relations with the community, the immediate environment, and users of the school; and institutional participation. A third section explores the principal's role in innovation and development and describes three stages of innovation. Last, an overall school project for school change is outlined in detail. Appended are a glossary and data sheets for record keeping. (15 references) (CLA)
