Creating a Successful Leadership Style: Principles of Personal Strategic Planning
Creating a Successful Leadership Style gives practical applications supported by real experiences. It presents the actual situations a principal or assistant principal faces on a day-to-day basis and provides strategies to address them. These strategies derive from a leadership style that is people oriented and designed to elicit positive outcomes and responses. Charles A. Bonnici presents several principles of educational leadership which, taken together, help the school leader develop a leadership style that is people oriented, humane, and effective. In the course of the regular school day, a school leader is rarely asked what management theory is being implemented in a school. Instead, the principal and assistant principal are faced with a multitude of immediate and long-range problems and issues that need real-life solutions.

Fixing Truancy Now: Inviting Students Back to Class
Truancy is a complex issue that continues to plague schools, and many blame truancy problems on students, parents, and socioeconomic factors. However, truancy is more than juvenile delinquents skipping school to have fun or be with friends. In Fixing Truancy Now: Inviting Students Back to Class, author Bruce S. Cooper posits that truancy is an indication that school curricula and pedagogy are not serving students' needs as well as they should, especially when it comes to ethnic minority students and English language learners. This book explores: *different types of truancy; *major research in the field; *and how teachers, school leaders, and students can work together in solving this problem. Ultimately this book offers hope that teachers, parents, and school leaders can find solutions to this multifaceted problem through collaborative problem-solving.

Why School Leaders Need Vision: Managing Scarcity, Mandates, and Conflicting Goals for Educational Quality
The concept of visionary leadership is defined and applied in this book, as supervision in schools requires a level of SUPER VISION that can be best developed through quality leadership, mentoring -- and mutual ideas, and support -- for adding more value to the school. This book shows just how vision is important and useful in all schools and districts. Time has thus come to find, build, and use high-quality visionary school leadership in its many dimensions; thus, this book takes at least ten different views (in the chapters) of the visionary roles and functions of education leadership in K-12 -- building on the roles, theories, and visionary actions of key players in the schools. No single perspective is enough, as all views must work in concert to the benefit of teachers and students, today. School leaders, moreover, need to have their own vision about the following: (a) what their work entails; (b) their school should be and look like; and (c) what their staff and students (and schools) can achieve.

Career Crisis in the Superintendency: The Results of a National Survey
This publication examines the findings from a study conducted by Fordham University researchers Bruce Cooper and Lance Fusarelli and assistant principal Vincent Carella that asked superintendents across the country what they think about their profession overall, their own skills, a range of career concerns, and their future interests. This study, conducted with support from AASA and the National Center for Education Statistics, is based on a new, validated survey instrument (Superintendents' Professional Expectations and Advancement Review) created by the researchers. Based on their findings, the authors make recommendations about ways to increase the number of high-quality candidates for the important job of superintendent of schools. Among the recommendations: increase opportunities for women and minorities; enhance superintendent's technical skills and expand/improve doctoral programs; de-segment the job market for superintendents; make pensions more portable; reorganize the superintendency by increasing district and university support for superintendents, as well as superintendent salaries; and find meaningful ways to recognize, value and reward superintendents' contributions. This book is a must-read for board members charged with hiring high-quality superintendents as well as for educators who are currently or aspire to be superintendents.
