Boards of Education Members' Perceptions of the Role of the Board and the Role of the Superintendent and the High School Principal. Studies in Education, Annual Publication of School of Teacher Education, Volume VIII.
Splawn, Robert E.
This study sought to determine how members of boards of education perceive the role of the superintendent, the role of the high school principal, and their own roles. Fifty of the 61 independent school districts in the upper 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle were randomly selected and one person from each board of education was randomly selected to represent his board in the study. Thirty-four of the board members participated in the study. Respondents were asked, in taped interviews, a series of questions concerning their perceptions of (1) the responsibilities of the superintendent and the high school principal and (2) the duties of the local board. In addition, data were collected to provide a description of the school board members in the study. A final chapter presents a summary of findings, implications, and recommendations for further studies. (MF)
