From Professional Preparation to On-the-Job Development: What Do Beginning Principals Need?
Duncan, Heather; Range, Bret; Scherz, Susan
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v6 n3 Jul-Sep 2011
Wyoming principals were surveyed regarding their perceptions of the strengths and deficits of their preparation program, their professional development needs as beginning principals, and the areas in which their districts offer professional development. Findings indicated much variation in perceptions of preparation program strengths and deficits. The internship was viewed as valuable in providing experience of day-to-day school administration; however, time commitment and financial burdens were of concern. While districts provide adequate professional development in instructional leadership and using data to inform decisions for beginning principals, development needs in the areas of communication, relationship building, and conflict resolution were not provided by districts. (Contains 3 tables and 6 footnotes.)
