The Principal as School Manager
Designed to teach the principal to efficiently and effectively accomplish noninstructional roles, the third edition of The Principal as School Manager offers advice on expectations and survival techniques to ensure the principal's longevity in the district. Like the previous editions, this book is an essential guide to practice and procedure. Its chapter on school legal issues will be especially useful for principals dealing with improper Internet usage, drug testing, and off-campus searches. Other chapters will explain the role of the assistant principal, the importance of maintaining safe schools in a climate of violence, and the relationship between the principal and the superintendent. This third edition contains new chapters and sections on managing the school curriculum, special education, classroom walk-throughs, creating a healthly school environment, and cyberbullying. Appropriate also for graduate courses on the principalship, educational administration, educational leadership, and personnel administration, The Principal as School Leader is the go-to guide for both novice and veteran school principals.
