Some Things Assistant Principals Do.
Kealey, Robert J., Comp.
The assistant principal of a Catholic elementary school carries out some of the duties (with the needed authority) of the school principal. How tasks and authority are delegated vary and depend upon the personality of each individual school. Fifteen assistant principals wrote essays relating one of their chief responsibilities to show a wide variety of duties and work environments: (1) "Young Author's Day: Student Authoring and Illustration," by Dottie Bessares; (2) "Discipline, Love, and Learning," by Maria C. Carreras; (3) "Early Childhood Programs," by Cindy Compagnone; (4) "Virtue-A-Month Program," by Suzanne Cowdrey; (5) "Analyzing the Role of Disciplinarian," by Judith O. Fisher; (6) "APEX--A Middle School Exploratory Program," by Betsy Kingsbury; (7) "Dual Roles," by Stella Lauerman; (8) "Growth for a Better You," by Carolyn Levet; (9) "Science Fairs: A Valuable Tool in Mission Realization," by Sue Long; (10) "A Plan for Local Inservice: Maximizing the Potential of Students Through Teacher Education," by Maureen Marsteller; (11) "Fostering Responsibility and Accountability: B.I.S.T.," by Jane Maurer; (12) "STOP: Moral Decision-Making in the Upper Elementary Grades," by Amy L. Mead; (13) "Safety in Our School," by Monica Moss; (14) "A.P.T. to Succeed," by Mary Jean Quill; and (15) "School Masses," by Carolyn Wilde. (RT)
