Effective School Leader's Guide to Management by Jane L. Sigford
Book DescriptionDiscover how to be a successful school leader and manager! Exploring 15 vital topics, as well as offering strategies and examples, Jane L. Sigford demonstrates how effective schools are a marriage of management and leadership. Organized into three sections: management and leadership theories, managing the school, and managing yourself, this resource helps administrators understand the complexity of leadership and addresses the application of effective management skills to create successful learning communities. Written for new and veteran school leaders, this essential guide: o Acts as a handbook, which contains an overview of individual components of school leadership normally scattered among many textbooks and resources o Provides suggested resources for more in-depth study o Offers individual reflective practice questions throughout for personal use o Suggests questions to help facilitate professional development group discussions, especially among peers The Effective School Leader's Guide to Management illustrates how school administrators can run a school efficiently, balancing their roles as instructional leaders and effective school managers, while still having time to improve professional development, foster parent and community relationships, make data-driven decisions, and nurture personal growth and leadership.

Author Biography - Jane L. Sigford
Jane Sigford is the executive director of curriculum and instruction for a suburban school district. She is also an adjunct professor at Hamline University, where she teaches in the Educational Leadership doctorate program. Sigford's doctorate in educational policy and administration was earned at the University of Minnesota. Her strengths and interests lie in shaping education to meet the needs of the 21st century. In her current district, Sigford's role is to loosen the traditional paradigms of education so that they can shape their own future. They conduct future searches to see where they want to be in five years and then design their curriculum and assessment accordingly. In addition, Sigford facilitates large group discussions about complex issues, such as self-examination of middle school programs. Rather than strategic planning, she facilitates self-studies with a future focus. Corwin Press has published Jane Sigford's two books, including The Effective School Leader's Guide to Management (2006) and Who Said School Administration Would be Fun?, Second Edition (2005). The second title is used as a text in several local administrative licensure programs. Sigford has conducted trainings internationally. Her experience includes being a classroom teacher, special education teacher, high school principal, and district-level curriculum director, in addition to teaching in higher education. She has licensure in teaching students with emotional disorders and learning disabilities.
