Evaluation Tools

 Star administrators can Reduce Turnover and Transform Student Achievement

A Star Administrator fosters a common vision and creates a positive working climate for both teachers and students in urban schools. This pre-screener predicts which candidates will succeed as school principals serving diverse children and youth in urban poverty in major urban school districts.

Based on decades of research and data, The Haberman Foundation has created an evaluation tool that will spot the Star Educators.  Nearly 200 schools and districts across the nation are currently using the Haberman Method and the Star Administrator Pre-Screener for hiring the best and brightest.
