Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the quality of narrative feedback from district supervisors given to school principals. In addition, building on the research of effective feedback, another purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between supervisor narrative feedback to school principals and four pillars of principal responsibility: student achievement, school climate, fiscal responsibility, and teacher performance. Narrative observation data from the School Leadership Evaluation - Florida Model were analyzed from a large urban school district to determine the level, (i.e., quality) of narrative feedback provided to school principals. Additional data were collected on the four pillars of principal responsibilities and then compared to the quality of narrative feedback to determine if a relationship existed between the quality of narrative feedback and each of the principal responsibilities. The information from this study was valuable for understanding the relationships that existed between the quality of feedback given to school leaders to aid in school improvement.
