Make Room for the Principal Supervisors - Denver Public Schools is one of a growing number of districts that are rethinking the job of principal supervisors. A key feature is decreasing the number of people a supervisor manages so he or she can better support the ones he or she has. Denver accomplished that with federal funding to support its school turnaround efforts. The district divided 20 failing schools into geographic clusters and hired deputy instructional superintendents to oversee them. It worked so well that to afford even more, the number of staff working for instructional superintendents was reduced. (Jennifer Gill, The Wallace Foundation, December 2013)...
