Overview

Designed to teach the principal to become efficient and effective in accomplishing noninstructional roles, this book offers advice on expectations and survival techniques to ensure the principal's longevity in the district. Like the previous edition, it provides a practical guide to practice and procedure in these vital areas. This second edition has updated the chapter on law dealing with pertinent issues such as: Internet usage, drug testing, off-campus searches. Other chapters include topics on: the role of the assistant principal, the importance of maintaining safe schools in a climate of violence, the relationship between the principal and the superintendent. Will be appropriate for graduate courses in the principalship, educational administration, educational leadership, and personnel administration.

Editorial Reviews

Gary L. Storie
As a former principal I find The Principal as School Manager to be very helpful with regard to many pertinent school management related issues.It is comprehensive, well written, and very informative—a wonderful handbook and ready reference for building administrators facing the many predictable and unpredictable events, problems, and questions that arise daily in a school building setting.The case studies alone prompt the type of thought and deliberation necessary for the decision-making in which a principal must engage daily.I encourage all principals to read and have a copy of this book close at hand.
Terry McDaniel
Sharp and Walter have used their knowledge of leadership and practical experiences to develop one of the very best books written for the principalship! The Principal as School Manager provides practical guidance for all responsibilities of the building leader, including current topics such as cyberbullying and walk-throughs. This is a must read for future school leaders!
Bernadine Cervantes
The Principal as School Manager is an excellent resource forschool administrators at any level. Sharp and Walter clearly articulate valuable knowledge about the complex role of the principal and outline the components for managing this challenging role.The key to high performing and successful schools begins with the principal.This book providesoutstanding insight about high profile critical issues such as special education, social media, and accountability.It is a "must have" guide for all administrators and leaders in education.
Cissy Reynolds-Perez
Once again, Sharp and Walter have created a must-read/user friendly/go-to book for principals.Their format of providing "The Principal's Casebook" offersreal world scenarios that principals face.And they have included "Questions to Consider" as an added bonus.My only regret about this book is that it wasn'tyet publishedback when I first became a principal. It would have saved me a lot of headaches.
Raul R. Prezas Ed.D
The Principal as School Manager is a mandatory read in our Educational Administration Program.Students will reference the chapters regularly during their Master of Science experience. Our professors depend on the practical experiences and detail while lecturing and discussing modern school administration practices.The comprehensive perspective this book delivers is an essential part of our program.And the additions the authors have made are both welcome and necessary in keeping our students on the cutting edge ofeducational administration.
School Administrator
...a valuable resource.
Illinois School Board Journal
I would recommend this work as among the best of its kind...Short, well-written, and—most importantly to the busy principal—contains a wealth of information of immediate value to the reader...A quick, easily-read summary of state-of-the-art educational administration in the 1990s..
