Examining the Impact and Cost Effectiveness of a Model Inservice Program for Developing Effective Instructional Leaders.
Krug, Samuel E.
A study examined the impact and cost effectiveness of a principal leadership-development program. The program is based on one-on-one interaction between the participant and a leadership analyst, and it includes the following components: assessment, feedback, and construction of a one-year personal development plan. A survey mailed to 195 Illinois administrators who participated in the program yielded 120 responses, a 62 percent response rate. Respondents' evaluations of the program itself and its impact on them were strongly positive. A utility analysis of program costs and benefits concluded that when program costs are considered within the context of program returns, benefits far outweigh costs. Five tables are included.
