Abstract & Summation: Classroom teachers and instructional personnel in public schools across Minnesota spent hundreds of yours considering the ways a principal should support both students and teachers and how those efforts can best be measured. Empowered by cutting-edge technology, these teaching professionals shared hundreds of ideas. Then, a small group of their colleagues distilled those ideas into 10 recommendations for ensuring principals are good managers and strong instructional leaders who can create the positive school climate needed to ensure student success.
