The Effectiveness of LEAD Program Elements.
Carver, Fred D.
This paper describes the Leadership Enhancement and Development (LEAD) preparation program implemented in Gwinnett County School District, Georgia, and designed to prepare participants for assistant principalships in the school district. Those selected for the program completed year-long coursework and a 12-week internship. This report presents data from a longitudinal study at the University of Georgia (the Georgia LEAD Study, or GLS). Data were obtained from GLS questionnaires administered to four cohorts of 12-15 individuals each, GLS interviews with participants, and intradistrict LEAD evaluations. Findings indicate that the program successfully included direct field-based learning in cooperation with the school district. Program strengths included strong basic content, direct field-based learning experience, and use of the cohort as an intact learning group. Five ways in which the practicum prepared participants for practice were identified--making career choices, refining goals, engaging in realistic practice, improving personal competence, and promoting personal professional development. Two tables are included. (LMI)
