Extractions: School Administrators Center ... Staffing School Administrators Article S C H O O L A D M I N I S T R A T O R S A R T I C L E What are the keys to a successful staff development program? This look at two award-winning programs at Hungerford School in Staten Island, New York, and at Montview Elementary School in Aurora, Colorado might provide some insight. Ask Dr. Mary McInerney, the principal of Hungerford School in Staten Island, New York, what makes the school's staff development program successful, and she replies, "The staff. They are responsible." Dr. McInerney credits a unique degree of staff involvement for creating the teacher development program that made Hungerford one of six schools and two school districts nationwide to be honored this year by U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley as part of The National Awards Program for Model Professional Development It wasn't always that way. When Dr. McInerney first arrived at the school, staff development workshops were held after school, and relatively few staff members participated. "When I came here as principal ten years ago," Dr. McInerney says, "I saw that staff workshops weren't well attended, even though the topics were very good. We asked staff members for feedback and found many had childcare responsibilities or second jobs that kept them from staying after school."

One strategy for improving education is to enhance the knowledge and skills of those who deliver education: the teachers, administrators, and support staff who work in the many varied programs designed to meet the educational needs of Georgia's undereducated adults. For seven years, the Adult Education Department at The University of Georgia has worked closely with the Office of Adult Literacy to design, implement, and continuously improve a statewide system of staff development for adult literacy educators. During the current project year, the university's efforts will focus on the following three major components. Staff Development Workshops . Fifty-two, five-hour workshops on 17 topics will be conducted at various sites throughout the state. Beyond Basic Skills: Innovative Teaching Materials for Georgia's Teachers of Adults.

Teaching Cases: New Approaches to Teacher Education and Staff Development A Program That Supports the Development and Use of Cases in Education Developed and tested by WestEd Patterned after a method long used successfully to prepare lawyers and business professionals, case discussions in education focus on detailed scenarios written about the real life experiences of teachers or administrators. WestEd's use of cases is based on the recognition that the work of educators, also, is informed not only by research but by experience. Because cases reflect reality, they help teachers learn to connect theories and concepts to the complex, idiosyncratic world of practice. Discussion of cases enhances analytic thought, reflection, inquiry, and, with some cases, content knowledge. In the math cases project, teachers develop this capacity through the careful and exciting process of reflection and inquiry generated by facilitated discussions with other teachers about math cases that portray real-life teaching dilemmas. In one case, for example, a student asks the teacher: "How can 100 percent of something be just one thing?" The question, itself, can give a teacher pause. Although most of us would agree that 100 percent means the whole thing or "one," the concept can be confusing. If you poll 23 people and 100 percent respond that they like toothpaste, does 100 percent mean 23 or 1? What seems obvious on the surface is really quite complex when you're trying to promote understanding of a concept and not just memorization of a rule.

For many educators, staff development has traditionally been synonymous with workshops, courses, and presentations by "experts" and has been called staff development, professional learning, professional development, and in-service training. However, we now know that true professional learning can take many forms and is most effective when it is standards-based, results-driven, systemic, ongoing, and job embedded. However it is described or presented, quality professional development leads to increased student learning. **You will need the FREE Adobe Acrobat reader to view and/or print the materials listed below (PDF).
