A Process Model of Principal Selection.
Flanigan, J. L.; And Others
A process model to assist school district superintendents in the selection of principals is presented in this paper. Components of the process are described, which include developing an action plan, formulating an explicit job description, advertising, assessing candidates' philosophy, conducting interview analyses, evaluating response to stress, and assessing references. The implementation of this model in several Kentucky school systems indicates initial success. School systems are encouraged to adopt systematic, rational means for principal selection. One figure illustrating the model is included. (46 references) (LMI)
