Report summarizes how to best support principals

10/30/2017

A new report titled Strengthening Educational Leader Supports sheds light on what principals need throughout their careers to maximize their effectiveness, along with suggested strategies and supports. To prepare the report, the Ohio Department of Education, in partnership with the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators and the Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators, worked with individuals throughout the state who participated in an advisory workgroup.
 
In the report, the workgroup members recognize the great number of successful principals working in Ohio schools, while acknowledging the significant demands these individuals face throughout their careers. The workgroup recommends specific steps that Ohio’s education agencies, higher education and local school districts can take to help in preparing, recruiting, sustaining and improving high-quality principals.
