Characteristics of Effective Principals in High-Poverty South Carolina Elementary Schools
Suber, Cleve
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v7 n1 Spr 2012
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001(NCLB) changed the landscape of education nationally. The purpose of this law is to provide a high-quality education to children regardless of their race, socioeconomic status, ability, or background. Effective School Research suggests that successful student learning is linked to the following school characteristics: alignment of instruction and assessment, focused professional development, effective monitoring of instruction, reduction of teacher attrition, and a positive school culture. Successful school principals are closely involved with the teachers' instruction and student learning in their schools. There are few high-poverty, high-performing schools within South Carolina based on school report card data. This study will identify the characteristics of principals, whose schools were identified as high poverty, high-performing according to the South Carolina Department of Education. The principals were identified by school awards received from the State for their perceived effectiveness. (Contains 5 tables and 3 footnotes.)
