The Effects of Authentic Vision Statement on Challenges Experienced by First Year Superintendents
Erdos, Monica
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Gannon University
A new superintendent in a new school district (NSND) can be a challenging position. The literature review asserts that many challenges faced by NSNDs are due to the absence of a shared vision. Challenges can be listed as work stoppage, personnel, financial, fighting ghosts, homecoming procession and many other aspects of running a district. Moreover, the vision may lack authenticity as defined by Morin (2010). This study examines NSNDs in Pennsylvania and finds a statistical relationship between the authenticity of the vision statement and the challenges experienced. Using a qualitative interviewing tool, as developed by the researcher, it is determined that fewer challenges were experienced as the degree of authenticity of the vision statement rises.
