ADAM: A Collaborative Effort To Prepare Future Administrators.
Richardson, Michael D.; And Others
ADAM (Administrative Development and Management), an administrator preparation partnership between Greenwood (South Carolina) School District 50 and Clemson University, is described in this paper. The program uses practicing administrators in collaboration with college faculty to train prospective school administrators. The purpose is to provide guided theoretically and clinically based experiences and to identify and develop leadership and management skills necessary for effective school administrators. Topics covered in the course include team building and group dynamics, problem solving, time management, finance, interview skills, and technology. This collaborative arrangement provides school districts and universities with a wider range of resources, improved identification of potential administrators, and superior training. One of the greatest benefits was that through shared experiences, individuals became stronger as members of groups who shared authority, built mutual trust, took greater risks, and became innovators. One table and one figure are included. (Contains 19 references.) (LMI)
