Leadership Requirements for School Principals: Similarities and Differences between Four Competency Standards
Lambert, Monique; Bouchamma, Yamina
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n188 p53-68 2019
The school principal is responsible for transmitting mission, vision, and values in and out the school, with a stronger, clearer emphasis for the success and well-being of students. Competency standard is defined as a guide that names the behaviours expected for the directions to do an effective job in their schools. This article presents the results of a content analysis of four competency standards for school principals from four different locations; two Canadian provinces (Québec and Alberta), Australia, and the United States. Despite the particularities of each context, the four competency standards studied present 85% of similarities. Competencies absent from these standards include technology, cultural diversity, and balance between personal and professional life.
