New Administrator Support System
Taylor, Elizabeth R.; Sacken, Mike; Thomas, Cornell
International Journal of Educational Reform, v12 n3 p208-216 Sum 2003
Recently, researchers and practitioners have found that the use of support groups is a productive method for enhancing collegiality, solving problems, and finding solutions in a "climate of mutual trust, respect, and assistance." Although the graduate school curriculum may have been helpful in planting knowledge, growth occurs in the experience of actual leadership. For this purpose, the Educational Foundations and Administration program at Texas Christian University (TCU) implemented the New Administrator Support System (NASS). It is the goal of the NASS to join academia with experience, while maintaining a solid support system as individuals enter into positions in school administration. The NASS program provides beginning administrators with ongoing support, expertise, and skills to be effective leaders in their schools. Such support is necessary in retaining and maintaining good administrators who promote cooperative learning environments among teachers and students. (Contains 2 tables.)
