Developing School Leaders: Practitioner Growth during an Advanced Leadership Development Program for Principals and Administrator-Trained Teachers
Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v2 n3 Dec 2007
This article shares findings from an exploratory case study about an advanced school leadership development program designed specifically for practicing principals and administrator-trained teachers. The program was designed to help a high-need rural district transform its principalship from school management into learner-center leadership while at the same time and expand its candidate pool to fill projected vacancies. Thus, socialization into the community of administrative practice was the theory of change for the project. Theories of actions include situated learning, leadership mentoring, community building, and succession planning. Findings from this qualitative study support recommendations for continued professional development of principals beyond initial certification and induction year. (Contains 1 table and 1 endnote.)
