What is the new AP application process?
Application process.
How was this process created?
The Holdsworth/Klein Collaborative Selection Working Group spent the fall and winter of 2017-2018 envisioning and designing a new, transparent Assistant Principal selection process that is fully aligned to Profile of a Leader. Throughout the process, the working group received feedback from Principals and central office staff members on the design of the process.
When did the new process launch?
The new pipeline application process began June 1, 2018.  The Applicant Review Committee (ARC) began the new application review process in July 2018.
How is this process different from AP selection processes that Klein has had in the past?

In designing this new AP selection process, the Selection Committee had several goals in mind:

  • Increase Transparency to create a process that is clear and fair to all
  • Create a process that is easy for applicants and for hiring managers
  • Align all elements of the selection process to Profile of a Leader

Unlike our previous processes, the new AP selection process is transparent at all stages, aligned to Profile of a Leader, and eases the burden on Principals as they make hiring decisions.

What is the selection criteria?

Klein ISD aspiring leaders that are ready to take on leadership in the role of Assistant Principal should internalize and demonstrate the characteristics outlined in Klein’s Profile of a Leader, which can be found in Klein ISD's Guiding Documents.



Leaders will be selected based on their ability to demonstrate the Profile of a Leader competencies, behavior, and be able to demonstrate leadership of others in the organization towards these goals.  All candidates are expected to have completed their Master’s degree in a related field, have obtained a standard principal certificate, and have at least 2 years of teaching experience.  If a candidate has a probationary or intern principal certificate, they may be permitted to enter the pipeline, but prior to being hired as an Assistant Principal, must have obtained a standard principal certificate.
