“We developed and validated the Principal EPI by working with experts from the United States and Canada, including more than 500 principals and leaders from 43 urban, suburban, and rural school districts,” said Nick Montgomery, chief research officer at PeopleAdmin. “We’re excited to offer schools a reliable, research-validated instrument for measuring individuals’ leadership dispositions, principal responsibilities, and leadership skills.
“The possibilities for empowering improvement are endless, especially in schools that have traditionally struggled to find principals who are the right fit,” Montgomery said.
The Principal EPI is part of PeopleAdmin’s complete suite of solutions built specifically to help educational institutions manage the entire talent life cycle: from recruiting and hiring, to developing and retaining.
PeopleAdmin launched the new solution at the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) Personnel Administrator Boot Camp, in Anaheim, California, held Feb. 2-3, 2017. PeopleAdmin and AASPA are also co-hosting a webinar, “Today’s Challenges and Emerging Practices when Hiring Quality Teachers and School Principals,” on Feb. 14, 2017, at 11 a.m. Central time.
