<div>The principal is far and away the most important person in elementary and secondary schools, with responsibility for the academic program and usually much more. Because of the small size of most Jewish day schools, the role of the principal - or head of school, the title of choice in a growing number of day schools - is enhanced in these institutions. Yet, for all of the communal attention given to day schools, including the development of training programs for existing and aspiring principals, we know little about these key personnel. The research reported here is apparently the first comprehensive profile of Jewish day school principals. This report is based on a survey sponsored by The AVI CHAI Foundation during the 2005-06 school year of slightly more than 500 day school principals. </div>

New teachers leave the profession at an alarming rate - and there's no single reason or easy solutions. The problem of teacher turnover is especially acute among new teachers, with as many as half of new teachers leaving within five years. In urban districts, the problem is worse. It only takes about three years for half of new teachers to leave. This article explains the growing trend of teacher turnover and programs that use mentors, coaches, and yearlong residencies to combat the problem.

In the mid-1980's, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) conducted a number of separate surveys concerning schools and school personnel. In 1985, NCES undertook a critical review of its elementary and secondary school data system, identifying gaps in content and in design. As a result of this review, NCES redesigned the SASS survey system to emphasize teacher demand and shortage, teacher and administrator characteristics, school programs, and general conditions in schools. SASS also collects data on many other topics, including principals' and teachers' perceptions of school climate and problems in their schools; teacher compensation; district hiring practices and basic characteristics of the student population. From its inception, SASS has had four core components: the School Questionnaire, the Teacher Questionnaire, the Principal Questionnaire, and the School District Que ...

A presentation by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). This PowerPoint presentation addresses the issue of &quot;pay for performance&quot; and the related issues of evaluation of staff. Schools have traditionally, in their fixed scale approach to faculty compensation, rewarded longevity and advanced degrees, when there is no evidence that either correlates necessarily with high performance as teachers. This presentation explores the concept of pay for performance and the three new compensation models some independent schools are experimenting with: bonus/pay for performance systems borrowed from the corporate model; broadband systems borrowed from the professional ranks of engineering or law; and faculty rank or tier systems borrowed from the university model. It also explores the distinction between evaluation (for professional development) and contracting (for employ ...
