Standard 9 Essay

  1. 1. THE PRINCIPAL AS HUMAN RESOURCES LIAISON I. Introduction The Florida Department of Education Bureau of Educator Recruitment, Development and Retention – Principal Leadership Standards state that the school principal “…recruits, selects, nurtures, and where appropriate retains effective personnel as well as developing mentor and partnership programs and designs and implements comprehensive professional growth plans for all staff- paid and volunteer. II. School Principals/Administrators and Human Resources Management The Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium Standards ISLLC Standards state that the school administrator or principle “…has knowledge and understanding of Human resources management and development and as well the administrator “facilitates processes and engages in activities ensuring that human resource functions support the attainment of school goals.” (ISSLLCS Standards, 2009) It can be understood that the school principal or administrator is responsible for effectuating successful learning and attainment of school goals through properly and effectively managing and developing human resources within the school. This can be accomplished through enabling classroom teachers with the support necessary for these teachers to grow individually and professionally and to attain higher levels of education.

The school administrator and principal understands the value of the school’s human capital or that of its teachers and understands that time and funding spent on teachers receiving higher levels of education and training is an investment for the school rather than an expense. In fact, it cannot be overemphasized how important the provision of advanced education and training is for building a strong and effective instructional practice for teachers and in achieving the school vision and goals. III. Responsibilities of HR Liaison The responsibilities of the school administrator/principal includes that of providing guidance and support to staff and assessment of staff performance and skills, and making identification of needs relating to education and training of staff as well as coordination and recruitment of staff and for competency based selection and facilitation of resolution of issues relating to HR in the school. The work of Norton (2008) entitled: “Human Resources Administration for Educational Leaders” states that a great part of the objectives of effective administration of human resources in schools is “lessening personal employee anxiety and forecasting a more positive climate…” (Norton, 2008) The responsibilities of the school administrator or principal in their capacity as HR Liaison are various and diverse and require excellence in processes of collaboration, that the school administrator or principal has effective communication skills and require that this individual listen to what all constituents are communicating to them during cooperative and collaborative efforts in school staff development and management initiatives.
