Abstract

Drawing on Blumberg and Greenfields studies of effectiveprincipals, offers an operational definition of school vision, based onteachers perceptions of that vision. The instrument developed consistsof three subscales 1 vision exchange the principalseffectiveness in exchanging hisher vision with the school community2 vision internalization the principals effectiveness ingetting others to internalize this vision, and 3 vision sacrificethe principals effectiveness in encouraging others to sacrificefor this vision. In an effort to validate the School Vision InventorySVI, three hypotheses were tested. The perceived robustness of theprincipals role was significantly correlated with two subscales of theSVI exchange and sacrifice. Significant correlations were also foundbetween teachers perceptions of the principals supervisory expertiseand vision exchange and sacrifice. Finally, there were higher meanprincipal vision scores in schools where teachers perceived progressbeing made towards vision realization. Presents the SVI as a potentiallyuseful way of assessing school vision, providing further insight intothe dynamics of professional life in schools.
