Greer, John T.; Mullen, David J.
This document reports the results of a survey modeled after a national survey of assistant principals taken in 1970 by the National Association of Elementary School Principals. Results from the national survey are reproduced in the document for comparative purposes. In this study, the questionnaire tapped such areas as the characteristics of assistant principals -- title, age, sex, marital status, race, previous positions, and attitudes; experience and preparation -- years in school work, teaching, assistant principalship, education, certification, and membership in educational organizations; working conditions -- location, school description, grades, enrollment, number of teachers, district characteristics, human relations in the schools, annual term of employment, division of work week, and secretarial help; major functions -- success factors, job preference, responsibilities, decisionmaking, autonomy, innovation sources, and assistant principal role; and financial status -- salary level and salary bases. The document concludes by summarizing and duscussing the implications of the survey results. The survey questionnaire and the correspondence sent to survey participants are reproduced in the appendix. (Author/DN)
