ABSTRACT

This article addresses achievements in three aspects gained by school principals as the main target of a partnership program, i.e. curriculum management, academic supervision, and entrepreneurship development. The data were collected in a six-month period as a result of the mentoring process of the school principals and their facilitators by conducting intervening mentoring process. The qualitative data were collected from the implementation of an action plan and were analyzed by using the fishbone diagram in order to reveal some main related factors to achieve their essential elements. The findings show that those three aspects being assessed in this study experienced a positive trend to those of eight school principals by establishing 8.88% level of improvement – from the initial mentoring stage (83.5%) to the second mentoring stage of 92.38%.
