Dissensus in Expectations for the Role of the Supervisor of Instruction as Perceived by Supervisors, Principals, and Teachers. Oregon School Study Council Bulletin, Volume 13, Number 10.
Supervision and improvement of instruction are central concerns for educators, causing school districts to expand and specialize their supervisory services. This document addresses the responsibility and vulnerability of the supervisory position. It points up the confusion surrounding the supervisor of instruction role as perceived by professional personnel within a system, which perception could be critical for the operation of that system. The author reports on a study made to determine the divergence and congruence of role expectations held for the supervisor of instruction position by supervisors (of instruction), principals, and teachers. The study also sought to determine the divergence and congruence in supervisor role expectations through the application of the teacher variables of the size of the school in which the teachers function, the amount of teacher training, the sex of teachers, the teaching level, teacher age, and years of teaching experience. Major findings, conclusions, and recommendations are presented in detail. A copy of the survey instrument and a bibliography are appended. (Author/WM)
