Professional Development Participation and the Role of Administrator Involvement in the MSP of SW Pennsylvania


"This study reinforces findings in the literature showing positive relationships between
administrative leadership in central offices and the professional growth and development of
school staff. The findings here are largely consistent with our hypothesis that administrator
participation is related to staff participation. As we have explained, these findings should not be
interpreted as causal, but they do lend support to the idea that MSP participation at or near the
top of a school district's organizational hierarchy is related to participation among individuals
working in schools. The findings also lend justification to the MSP directors' emphasis on
administrator engagement and participation."
