Litigation, Legislation and the Principal.
King, Richard A.
The role of the building principal has evolved from that of a teaching principal with primary duties as an instructional leader to that of a manager of a complex organization. Changes in the legal status of the principal during the past five years are presented here through an examination of litigation and legislation which have altered the principal's duties and responsibilities, due process rights, collective bargaining rights, and certification requirements. The paper contends that the legal status of the principalship has indeed changed and that the role of the principal will continue to alter as it is shaped by future litigation and legislation.
