Developing the Effective Principal: Hiring, Evaluation, and Retention Practices for the Superintendent.
Whaley, Jamie, Ed.
School principals are asked nowadays to be a curriculum manager, staff motivator and evaluator, business manager, public-relations representative, safety expert, disciplinarian, site manager, and the list goes on. This resource contains a broad array of tools and information, including exhibits, forms, handouts, and charts that can be used to maximize principals' talents in the myriad roles they play. Chapter 1 focuses on recruiting and hiring. Chapter 2 contains information related to principals' personal growth in their position, including a leadership self-assessment tool. School improvement is the focus of chapter 3, and it includes items that can be distributed to principals to help them achieve school and district goals. Chapter 4 zeros in on evaluation practices and provides a number of assessment tools that can be added to any principal's performance assessment process. Finally, chapter 5 touches on some of the legal issues that school leaders face, including staff discipline. Appendix A contains a list of resource associations and organizations, publications, and Web sites. (RT)
