The Functional Allocation of the Superintendent's Time.
Christensen, Albert C.; And Others
IAR-Research Bulletin, v7 n3 p5-7 May 1967
The amount of time a school superintendent spends in the various functions of his job is studied. The data used were those collected by Robert Utter and Gordon Anderson in 76 school districts in the Metropolitan School Study Council and the Associated Public School Systems during 1964-65. Included were school systems ranging in size from 975 to 91,219 pupils. A questionnaire elicited information from superintendents on the allocation of their time among various functions and among various classes of recipients of their services. It was found that as a school district increases in size the average superintendent spends more time in general policy development and school-community relations, and less time in staff-personnel administration and procurement of materials.
