November 2, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

If the topic of principal education/hiring/effectiveness interests you, check out these new reports sponsored by the Wallace Foundation.

On October 26, 2016, in their news release titled Building pipelines to develop effective school principals, it was “noted direct benefits to novice school principals by raising the quality of their training, hiring, evaluations, mentoring and other support during their crucial first years on the job.”

And “The Policy Studies Associates report details how six districts strengthened the four key parts of “principal pipelines:”

  • Defining and actively using job standards that anchor preparation programs, hiring and evaluations;
  • Reshaping pre-service preparation through new or revamped in-house programs and partnerships with other providers, including internships;
  • Tightening hiring by requiring candidates to demonstrate skills, creating talent pools and using data to match principals with the right schools; and
  • Providing new evaluations and better on-the-job support through mentors, coaches and the revamped principal supervisor role.”

For more information/details about the principal pipeline  read the following:
