Will "High-Quality Customer Service" For San Diego Principals Mean High-Quality Schools?

So much rhetoric is being spouted about mentoring new principals, but what is being done to evaluate and retrain existing principals? Let's talk numbers. According to this article there are more than 180 schools in the district. Forty-two of them have new principals. That leaves more than 138 existing principals who may or may not be on the radar for doing substandard work. Until every principal is held to the same high standards, this new focus on leadership is just another PR stunt without real substance. I'll believe Superintendent Marten is serious about creating positive and effective leadership when she manages to evaluate and mentor not just the energetic enthusiastic new principals but ALL the principals in her district. Only then will she truly earn the kudos this article has prematurely awarded her.
