I am on the search committe for our building principal and I needed some input on this. Our school has been underperforming for the past several years, we have low morale, many teacher conflicts, poor parent and teacher involvement, we don't have enough required services for our students, little funding and we have had 4 principals in the past 6 years (who I might add were waiting out their retirements and did nothing!). The committee needs to come up with some interview questions. I was wondering if it would be worth it to just briefly explain the situation our school is in and ask potential candidates what they would do to improve our current situation. I thought it would be more beneficial than to ask standard interview questions. Any thoughts on this?
