Time-Span of Discretion and Administrative Work in School Systems: Results of a Pilot Study.
Allison, Derek J.; Morfitt, Grace
Journal of Educational Administration and Foundations, v11 n1 p8-37 1996
Investigated Elliott Jaques's theories of organizational depth structure and timespan of discretion in two Ontario school systems. Both superintendents and principals were working at two-year timespans; system directors worked at a maximum three-year timespan. Findings imply that principals' responsibilities resemble those of assistant superintendents. School size may strongly determine principals' responsibility level. (23 references) (MLH)
