Principals' Partnership
Resources for high school principals, sponsored by Union Pacific.
Grade Level: Professional

This site, sponsored by the Union Pacific Corporation, provides a wealth of practical articles and other resources to support the work of high school principals.
The site is well organized and easily navigated, if not the most aesthetically beautiful site. The left side menu remains constant while the content is displayed on the right side of the screen. There are also links to features on the far right of the main page.

High School Principals' Partnership is a program that is sponsored by the Union Pacific Corporation to "to assist principals in selected Union Pacific communities to meet their leadership needs and professional growth objectives." This Web site complements the program and also offers free resources and information on school reform for any high school principal. Leadership resources include timely news articles of interest to high school principals, professional tools such as a handbook for shaping student attitudes, a curriculum alignment activity and a discussion of administrative support. The library contains research briefs on such topics as achievement gap, block scheduling, gangs, learning communities and improving test scores. Each month there is a featured article and all articles are added to the article archive. These articles cover topics that are particularly relevant to high school principals such as What People Look for in a Winning Principal, No Child Left Behind: Resources for Principals, The Principal's Role in Student Achievement, and more. Rounding out the site is a nice set of links to professional organizations and publications.
