Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n30 May 2004

This article investigates the recruitment and selection strategies of one large Canadian school district in Ontario, called here the "Northwestern School District." Data collection included interviews, document analyses and observations, and were gathered in 2001. Findings indicated that designated structured teams, financial and emotional support from district office, and support for developing professional growth portfolios were key to attracting candidates. Other findings indicated a need to revisit district policies such as the practice of rotating school principals every three to five years, and the policy favoring internal promotion over promotion from outside the district.
