Would you like to become a more successful principal? Then utilize a fellow principal's two decades of experience, and avoid costly trial-and-error techniques that add to your stress and can damage your career and your school. The topics in this handbook cover timesaving techniques, improving communication, sensible budgetary procedures, developing vision statements for school development, and more. Each detailed chapter is highly goals-oriented and provides practical, time-tested advice that can encourage veteran principals as well as those just beginning.
