REL TR00608 The Status of the Preparation and Hiring of School Principals in the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Region
This technical brief describes the current status of the preparation and hiring of school principals in the Pacific Region-American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap), Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Republic of Palau. The brief answers a central question: what academic, practice-based, and standards and policy criteria are used in the preparation and hiring of principals? It finds that many jurisdictions had relatively recent certification standards and policies and that the procedures and criteria for preparing and hiring school principals vary across jurisdictions in models, requirements, and implementation levels. The only requirements common to all 10 jurisdictions are that principals must complete some college-level coursework and must have teaching experience.

NCES 2006313 Characteristics of Schools, Districts, Teachers, Principals, and School Libraries in the United States: 2003-04 Schools and Staffing Survey
The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) is the nationís most extensive sample survey of elementary and secondary schools and the teachers and administrators who staff them. This report introduces the data from the fifth administration (2003-04) of SASS. It is intended to give the reader an overview of the SASS data for the school year 2003-04 through tables of estimates for public, private, and BIA-funded schools and their staff. For example, one of the findings from the data is that 77 percent of public school districts required full standard state certification in the field to be taught when considering teaching applicants. Also, 82 percent of all public school teachers reported having 4 or more years of full-time teaching experience. These highlights, and others in the report, were not selected to emphasize any particular issue, and they should not be interpreted as representing the most important findings in the data. They are simply examples of the kinds of data that are available in the 2003-04 SASS. In addition, complex interactions and relationships have not been explored.
