Title: A Descriptive Analysis of the Principal Workforce in Florida Schools
Description: This report describes the results of a REL Southeast study using the Florida Department of Education staffing database to describe the demographic make-up, Florida Educator Certificate coverages, career paths from 2001/02 to 2011/12, and evaluation ratings of Florida's educational leaders (i.e., assistant principals and principals) in the 2011/12 school year. The sample consisted of 4273 assistant principals and 2979 principals. The study consists of a cross-sectional component and a longitudinal component. The cross-sectional component analyzed the demographic characteristics of the 2011/12 school year educational leaders. The longitudinal component utilized a retrospective cohort analysis to track the certification coverages and career paths of the educational leaders from 2001/02 to 2011/12. Analyses of frequencies, measures of central tendency and distribution, and cross tabulations were examined to provide insight into the demographic characteristics, training, professional experiences, performance, and career paths of Florida's educational leaders in the 2011/12 school year.
