                       Just like teacher preparation programs,
                       admin prep programs are mostly wasted
         1           3 time.                                              2

                       Through the doctorate program in
                       curriculum and supervision I became
         1           4 much better prepared.                              4


                        believe the U of I did an excellent job
                       preparing me. In addition I took the
                       National Teacher Examination and scored
         1           5 very high on the administration portion.           5

      I believe that there needs to be more
      guidelines during the internship. The more
      experienced principal needs to be know
      how to invest and give experiences to the
      upcoming administrator. As far as
      classes, I believe that the classes do an
1   2 ok job of pre                                2

      I was fortunate because I was in an
      administration position while I completed
      my program and this experience was
1   3 invaluable.                                  2

      The University of Idaho has a few really
      great professors at the time I was
      completing my program. Dr. Marv
      Nottingham was absolutely unforgettable
      and invaluable for many of my successful
      responses to situations that face a
1   4 principal or superintenden                   3




      Taught how to deal with staff in
1   3 appropriate way.                             3



      What prepared me most was my
      internship and administrative subbing
1   3 opportunities.                               2
                   No amount of training could prepare an
                   administrator adequately. The job is
                   incredibly varied and challenging: from
                   talking down a parent who has pulled out
                   a knife to unclogging toilets, a principal
           1     4 simply must do "whatever it takes."            4

                   My experience in the pre-service program
                   was good. I believe part of that was the
                   mentorship I received from the person I
                   did my training with. Dr. Jim Lewis from
                   Blaine County was my mentor. I ned
                   receive some mentoring from Phip Homer
           2     4 as well.                                       4

      - I had worked for 12 years as a guidance
      counselor prior to entering the
      Principalship. I feel that the cross program
      training allowed me additional insight
      necessary to cover certain areas that the
      administrative program (curriculum,
2   4 computer data bas                              3

      - I think there is no program that can
      prepare one for all the aspects of an
      administrator's role. It is too complex.
      Only experience can provide the
2   3 confidence.                                    3

      evaluation within a district tends to be
      based on policy and procedure rather than
      what preservice training would provide. I
      felt I was trained in a few different
      processes well. However, I use a system
2   5 that The school district specifies.             3




      Preparation was based on general
      situations, as It should Have been, based
      on most districts may Have slightly
2   3 different policies and procedures.              3

       It's similiar to student teaching. Until you
      are "in the trenches" you don't know what
2   2 to expect.                                      4

      The program taught a lot about how to
      treat staff and how to observe teachers
      and then get them to find areas to improve
      through The dialogue. I wish there would
      Have been a state evaluation standard

      - Great preparation for a "normal" admin
      role, but charter school admin requires us
      to wear all the hats of a superintendent
      AND a principal.....a bit beyond the call of
      duty or what it expected when preparing to
3   4 go into admin!                                 5

      the position, no training and just basically

                - I am a brand new principal - this is our
               third day of school. Right now I don't have
               a clue if my training is or was effective.
               Ask me in a year! :) I did not feel
               comfortable filling out on the "Current
               teacher evaluation system" but the system
       4     1 would                                           1

        - My pre-service program was fine, but the
        vast majority of my preparation came from
        20 years of leadership experience in
        another profession prior to becoming a
4     3 teacher.                                          3

          So many of the day to day responsibilities
          I don't think you can be prepared for. It is
          just like student teaching, you just jump in
          and sink or swim. Hopefully, the
          preparation will help us to swim. Many
          things we know from pre-service training,

        are primarily responsible for my sense of

      - As with teacher prep programs, the
      program for adminsitrative preparation did
      provide some good information and
      beginning understandings, as well as
      direction toward learning to see the "big
      picture", but the real learning has come in

       - I would have to say that I was prepared
      for some of the duties that I perform as an
4   3 administrator, but not well for others.        3

      The role of The building administrator has
      drastically changed. when I did my course
      work there was very little training on
4   2 instructional Leadership.                      4

       - The instructors that taught the classes I
      took to earn my administrative certificate
      were/are practicing administrators and
4   5 were able to provide real life situations.     4
      there is a lot of study on theory and not
      enough on The nuts and bolts of The
4   3 practice of being an administrator.            4

      I was involved in developing The Twin

4   5 develop and pilot.                              5
      - I thought the master's program gave me
      a good overview of a principals role but it
      did not go into enough detail on all the day
4   3 to day responsibilities.                        2


      - I didn't feel that the internship was
      structured as well as it could have been. It
      would have been nice to have some sort
      of performance criteria (with various
      options that would fit most schools) that
      needed completed to get an

                Accademic Preparation at The University

      - My internship wasn't the most extensive.

    important but I do believe
    the best traing for this
