Walsh, Anne, Ed.; Feistritzer, Patricia, Ed.
During the 1991 National Catholic Principals Academy, 30 elementary school principals came together to sharpen their skills, to be exposed to new trends and ideas, and to be empowered as Catholic education administrators. This handbook is the result of sharing ideas and is a compilation of tried and true processes, "how to" advice, and practical suggestions. The papers are by multiple authors; most contain references, a list of contact persons, and sample forms or questionnaires. Included in the handbook are the following papers: (1) "Evaluation of the School's Catholicity" (Robert Doyle and others); (2) "Dear Father, You Are Cordially Invited" (Ronald Pere and others); (3) "Enrollment: Securing Our Future" (Margaret Balfe and others); (4) "In the Beginning: Orientation of the New Teacher" (Rebecca James and others); (5) "Involving Staff in the In-Service Process" (Carolyn Knipper and Deborah Suddarth); (6) "Getting Started as a Catholic School Principal" (Karen Bansemer and others); (7) "Development of the Catholic School Board" (Roberta Bailey and others); (8) "Computers in the School: Working Hard or Hardly Working?" (Magdalene Kabat and others); (9) "Introducing Change with Success" (Mary Ann Luby and others); and (10) "Looking for Saints: Hiring Catholic School Teachers" (Raymond John and Mary Jon Wagner).
