Northeast Ohio Principals Academy Pilot Entry Year Program Evaluation Report.
Trenta, Louis; Covrig, Duane
This evaluation determined the workability of the Northeast Ohio Principals Academy Pilot Entry Year Program, noting the differential effects of its major components in developing portfolios and as a contributing factor to school improvement. The program provides leadership and support to beginning principals, provides collaborative learning communities, and assists with the development of Ohio's administrative portfolio. The program's Coordinating Committee includes active and retired public school administrators, a school superintendent, and representatives of colleges with programs to prepare educational administrators. The evaluation examined the views of Committee members, program facilitators, mentors, and mentees about the program and program effectiveness. Overall, the program was effective because of its diverse Coordinating Committee participants, use of facilitators as middle managers to keep the program on task, support for professional development, and development of general and local meetings and good meeting attendance. Eleven appendixes, which comprise the bulk of the document, include: Ohio administrative codes 3301-24-02 and 3301-24-04; evaluation plan; debriefing: general meeting, January 2000; evaluation meeting, April 2000; survey of coordinating committees, May 2000; facilitator interviews, May 2000; effective meeting features; mentor program benchmarks; participant questionnaire; questionnaire responses; and table of ranked responses and distribution charts.
