Creative management

Section 17, paragraph 2 of The Education Act of the Philippines states that the administration  shall be accountable  for the efficient and effective administration and management of the school. It is therefore, the role of the administration to effectively and efficiently manage the school. School Management is not a joke. Being a good manager  is to be able to apply and integrate the knowledge and analytical approaches developed by numerous disciplines. To possess these characteristics, a manager has to do numerous functions. One of these is CREATIVE MANAGEMENT. Creative Management is the process by which creativity techniques are made, it also involved decision-making. Creative management skills of managers specially in our educational system is one of the most important aspects which a manger has to posses. Decision making is important is the creative management. As administrator has to decide on what strategies he is going to use to stimulate the people along with him in the work place to attain maximum  fulfillment in every individual. No approach in decision-making can guarantee that a school head will always make a right decision but he who uses a rational intelligent and systematic approach is more  likely than the others  to come up with a high quality solution to the problem he faces.

Instructional leadership

The description of instructional leadership that has attained the highest level of visibility over the years is that by Wilma Smith and Richard Andrews (1989). They identify four dimensions, or roles, of an instructional leader: resource provider, instructional resource, communicator, and visible presence. As a resource provider the principal ensures that teachers have the materials, facilities, and budget necessary to adequately perform their duties. As an instructional resource the principal actively supports day-to-day instructional activities and programs by modeling desired behaviors, participating in inservice training, and consistently giving priority to instructional concerns. As a communicator the principal has clear goals for the school and articulates those goals to faculty and staff. As a visible presence the principal engages in frequent classroom observations and is highly accessible to faculty and staff.
