Summary

In November 1973 the Minneapolis Public Schools' Leadership Development Committee conducted a needs assessment of school administrators' professional development requirements. Three-fourths of the approximately 260 people surveyed returned the survey questionnaires. The respondents were mainly principals and assistant principals. Findings of the survey indicate that almost 40 percent of the respondents are in definite need of information regarding recertification. One-third of all respondents need to be recertified but don't know how to go about it. The people in greatest need of recertification information are those who have been in the school system ten years or less. There is also a need for more opportunity for professional development. Only 30 percent of the respondents felt there was ample opportunity to meet all professional development needs. The most frequently named needs were human relations training and college coursework. Two-thirds of all respondents had specific suggestions or requests for kinds of training or experience they would like, regardless of recertification requirements. The most desired training was in the general area of management skills. Curriculum development, alternative education, and evaluation skills were also frequently requested. (Author/JG)
