Principal as HC Manager

Principals are the key to strong HC management, and the HR office can help support the principal in this role. This section provides tools to help HR offices and principal managers set principals up to be strong managers of human capital.

Human capital management and instructional leadership are two sides of the same coin. By understanding talent management, principals are able to be stronger instructional leaders.
