Considering the Inclusion of Building Tours as Integral Elements of School Principal Selection Interviews
Spanneut, Gene M.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v4 n2 p5-12 Sum 2007
Principal selection procedures have been well documented and their components widely described. Interviews are the tools of choice for selecting principals. Besides using information collected apart from the context of interviews to assist with making selection decisions, data obtained from elements that are carefully planned and included within them should also be considered. Studying the existence and/or feasibility of including deliberately designed and conducted tours as integral interview components may provide school district leaders with additional relevant candidate data as they endeavor to select the right principals for their schools.
