The Superintendent/Principal: A Position Born in Purgatory
Curry, Michael C.; Wolf, Lora L.
Education Leadership Review of Doctoral Research, v5 p30-48 Fall 2017
The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine the priority level of the roles and responsibilities of the superintendent/principal in Illinois as perceived by board of education presidents, teachers' union presidents, and practicing superintendent/principals in the 102 Illinois school districts utilizing the superintendent/principal model. The findings found agreement in the two roles (chief financial officer and role model) and two responsibilities (financial oversight and build a positive and safe school climate) along with the least important role (politician) and the least important responsibility (oversight/supervision of student activities and extra curricular events).
