Man About School or How Can the Principal Be or Become an Instructional Leader?
Stanavage, John A.
To perform effectively the role of instructional leader, the contemporary secondary school principal must reorganize his "principalship" by delegating to staff assistants responsibility for such managerial activities as student control, student activities, public relations, and plant operation. Following such a reorganization, the principal will find time for those activities more fundamental to the role of instructional leader, including classroom observation, staff committee sessions, individual conferences with teachers and students concerning the instructional program, attendance at educational curriculum meetings, and reading and writing. A staff organization which allows the principal to function as the instructional leader should be a primary goal for any principal who wishes to affect instruction and curriculum development in his school.
