A major goal of the Bank Street College of Education Principals Institute program is to increase the pool of women and minorities prepared for careers as school administrators. Candidates nominated by superintendents of several school districts went through a rigorous review process before being selected to participate. Students in the institute attend classes for three academic semesters and one summer. Participants work in their regular job the first semester and attend weekly evening classes. In the second semester, they work in a public school outside their "home" district under a mentor principal's guidance and attend evening advisement classes. In the third semester, students return to their regular school positions and attend evening classes. During June, participants attend evening classes. After successfully completing the program, participants receive a master's degree with a concentration in educational leadership and are eligible for New York State certification as a school administrator and supervisor. The program has been successful in achieving its goals. By June 1992, 27 out of 34 respondents to the 1991-92 followup survey (79.4 percent) were working in supervisory/administrative capacities; 3 of these respondents attained acting principalships. All received New York State certification. Respondents' program ratings are discussed, along with conclusions and recommendations. Appendices contain tables of gender/minority pedagogical supervisor figures for New York City and followup survey data. (MLH)
