Developing a Framework for the Continual Professional Development of Administrators in the Northeast. The DeWitt Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund Study Conference (November 1992).
Regional Laboratory for Educational Improvement of the Northeast & Islands, Andover, MA.
Six northeastern states and The Regional Laboratory for Educational Improvement of the Northeast and Islands convened 42 exemplary principals, superintendents, educational administration faculty, representatives from business and industry, and legislators to discuss the professional development of school- and district-level administrators within the region. The conference was part of a larger endeavor called the Common Market Project, which also formed the Administrator Standards Working Group (which is working toward the development of a regional credential for administrators). This document is a product of the conference, which sought to establish a framework for a continuum of professional development for existing and future administrators. The conference revised the proposed regional competencies to include a focus on the demonstration of proficiency; drafted a framework for continuous professional development; and created a committed cadre of individuals in the northeast region. It also identified the following concerns to be addressed by the Administrator Standards Working Group: (1) the number of credentials to be issued; (2) the most feasible method for implementing a regional delivery system for professional development; and (3) the representativeness of the strategies to the administrative community at large. Three figures are included. Appendices contain a draft of competencies for administrators and a list of conference participants. (LMI)
