Statewide Induction and Mentoring for New School Leaders: A Longitudinal Study of Student Achievement and Improvement in Schools Led by Missouri Administrators Mentorship Program Graduates

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Missouri Department of Education sponsored legislation during the 2005-06 academic year requiring beginning school administrators to engage in two years of mentoring. School districts were required to provide the mentoring, or to participate in the Missouri Administrator Mentoring Program (AMP). Since the MO-AMP began, 600 new school leaders have participated in the program. This longitudinal study examines the effects on measures of school improvement and student achievement in schools led by Missouri principals in urban, rural, and suburban districts, who participated in mentoring for two years through MO-AMP and who continued to work as principals in the same school for one to two additional years. Data collected from schools included principal demographics, MO-AMP program components and evaluation data, student achievement results on annual state standardized reading and mathematics assessments, and instructional and administrative processes as reported on the annual Missouri School Improvement Program reports. This paper presents the results of the analysis of these data, in addition to a description of the Missouri Administrator Mentoring Program, and concludes with recommendations for induction programs for new school leaders who are capable of promoting positive growth in schools and in student achievement.
