A Case Study of Five Principals At Work: Questioning the Impact of Supervision on Long-Range Planning.
Blair, Billie Goode
Findings from a longitudinal case study that explored the relationship between principals' supervisory practices and school success in meeting long-range planning goals are presented in this paper. Methodology involved a questionnaire, interviews, and observations of five elementary school principals in Riverside County, California. Findings indicate that newer principals were more likely to postpone development of evaluative practices or strategic planning, and that principals with 3-5 years of experience implemented well-developed planning cycles into their staff supervision processes. An outcome of the study was the facilitation of good supervision practices in relation to long-range planning. One figure is included. The questionnaire is included in the appendix.
