dc.description.abstract A survey of the literature as well as an examination of a proposed training model and the actual program held in the Lunenburg County District School Board were used to develop recommendations for a school district-based vice principal preparation program. Trends and programs in educational leadership preparation, adult learning and staff development research, training approaches and methodologies, workshop topics and skills, and university-school partnerships were all examined for suggestions. Final recommendations and conclusions were made as a result of the survey of literature and an analysis of the LCDSB program. The study emphasized the need for a well-researched, planned training program for vice principals. Solidly researched theoretical foundations along with practical skills were seen as important in preparation programs. Topics proposed included the change process, problem-solving skills, communication, collaboration and facilitation, and staff development. Further research was suggested in the areas of university-school district partnerships and dialogue between school districts and business and industry. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
