Mentoring Programs To Support Beginning School Leaders.
Daresh, John C.
Two trends have become issues for school management in recent years. One is that educational leadership is becoming increasingly a more complex and difficult job to carry out and the other is that an increasing number of people with little administrative experience are moving into educational roles. The implementation of local, school district-sponsored mentoring programs assists both experienced and beginning school leaders. During the past 4 years, staff from the Center for Educational Leadership at the University of Northern Colorado have been working with school systems across the nation in developing these mentor programs. A training model has been developed that consists of five domains related to the implementation of effective local mentor programs. These domains are: (1) orientation to mentoring; (2) instructional leadership; (3) human relations skills; (4) mentor process skills; and (5) local implementation issues. The paper concludes with the implications for Colorado school districts. (RR)
