A guide on the side to help you excel in all areas of the principalship!

This third edition of a bestseller serves as a personal mentor for principals, providing the practical resources and tools to help inservice and aspiring administrators manage the challenges of leading a learning organization and facilitating school improvement.

Educational leadership consultant Pam Robbins and experienced principal Harvey B.

This revised and updated guide reflects recent changes in a wide range of educational issues, including data-driven decision making and high-stakes accountability, instructional implications of brain research, federal legislation, cyberbullying, and social responsibility. This book provides:

  • Research-based strategies for succeeding with issues deemed critical to the principalship by practicing principals

The Principal's Companion is the principal's ideal accompaniment for creating an environment that supports teachers' efforts to bring about successful student performance.
