by Forrest, Donald Duane, Ed.D., Lindenwood University, 2009, 103; 3372326
Abstract (Summary)

This study was to determine if there was a positive correlation between the years of experience of the high school principal and the annual performance of the district. Data was obtained from sixty randomly selected school districts in Missouri. The years of experience of the high school principal was compared to the Missouri Assessment Program scores in tenth grade Math, eleventh grade Communication Arts, 9-12 attendance rate, and the graduation rate. The reporting period data for this study was selected from the 2007-08 school year from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education website. The findings of this study did not show a significant relationship between the years of experience of high school principals and the performance of the districts.
