Richardson, M. D.; And Others
Elements of a principal renewal program to help principals improve their instructional leadership skills are described in this paper. Nine topics of the staff development training program are highlighted, which are learned through supervised nonjudgmental practice: quality schools development; quality principal characteristics; time management; interpersonal skills; goal setting; conferencing skills; site-based management; conflict management; and problem solving. The training model is based on awareness of a knowledge base, modeling, independent and supervised practice, and evaluation. One figure depicts the training model. (9 references) (LMI)
