The Development of an Infrastructure for a Model of Coaching Principals
James-Ward, Cheryl
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v6 n1 Jan-Mar 2011
This descriptive study investigates the development of a district leadership coaching program. Specifically, the study examines the creation of a coaching program for elementary principals, the first six months of monthly meetings between the coaches and district leaders, and the perceived utility of the meetings by the district coaches. Qualitative methods were used to examine: (a) the development of a leadership coaching program for principals, (b) the communication and interaction between coaches and district leadership, and (c) the perceived effectiveness of the infrastructure. The findings indicate that when there is a cluster of leadership coaches, as well as regularly scheduled meetings between district leadership and coaches, there may be advantages to the district, the coached principals, and the coaches.
