The American Association of School Administrators, with a $136,630 grant from from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, will establish an "executive-development center" in Michigan to help school administrators assess and improve their managerial and leadership skills.

It will be the second such center established by the 18,000-member group. The first pilot center was established last summer at the University of Texas at Austin.

Over the next several years, the aasa plans to form a network of centers across the country that will help practicing and prospective administrators--particularly superintendents--enhance their skills and knowledge.

As envisioned, the centers will also assist universities and colleges in assessing candidates for preparation programs for the superintendency.

The Michigan center, expected to be in operation by early 1988, will be administered by the Michigan Association of School Administrators with support from the state education department.--br
