A Study of the Role of Unit School Food Service Supervisor as Perceived by Selected North Carolina Superintendents and School Food Service Personnel.
Preas, Nancy Bush
The purpose of this study was to delineate behavioral tasks which should ideally constitute the role of the local school food service supervisor and the relationship of certain variables to the perception of this role. A role model of 43 behavioral tasks was developed and incorporated in a survey form. This was used to collect data from local superintendents of schools and school food service supervisors and managers. The replies of 302 respondents were used. There were distinct differences among individual respondents, as well as among positional groups, in their expectations concerning the degree of emphasis which the supervisors should place on each task. However, the majority of the respondents assigned a medium or high degree of emphasis to all but one of the 43 tasks in the model. Tenure in present position, past positions held, membership in professional organizations, unit supervision, and length of association with unit supervision, appear to be significantly associated with respondents' expectations of the relative emphasis assigned to one or more of the tasks. The document includes 13 tables and 12 references. (author/ly)
