Redesigning a Principal Preparation Program: A Continuous Improvement Model
Hernandez, Rosalinda; Roberts, Maria; Menchaca Velma
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v7 n3 Oct 2012
The paper describes a mixed methods approach to the process of redesigning a principal preparation program. A qualitative approach was used to gather data from superintendents within the geographic area using a focused group approach, whereas, quantitative data, were gathered through a survey of program graduates with questions aligned to the three domains of the TExES examination for principal certification. Texas universities that offered principal preparation programs were studied and analyzed as a backdrop to the study. The superintendent responses identified various strengths and weaknesses in the delivery of the program. The graduate survey results indicated low satisfaction ratings in principal preparation in the three domains as the program currently exists. The study proposes a model for redesigning principal preparation programs based on the findings. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
