The New Principal's Role in Establishing a Collaborative, Progressive Vision
Fridell, Max E.
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v1 n2 Jul-Dec 2006
The principal new to the school enters an environment that is oftentimes a mix of excitement and apprehension. Before the new principal can begin to initiate an agenda for change that will have long-lasting effects, it would be wise to clearly understand not only the current status of the school but also the best path to take toward success. The adage applies, "If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else" (attributed to Yogi Berra). By following a framework for collaboration and action, the new principal can frame a support network based on observation, assessment, formulation, activation, and reflection.
