Summary

To determine community attitudes toward the position of elementary school principal, data were gathered in a Pacific Coast community in 1965 through role norm inventories completed by 367 teachers, 22 principals, the seven members of the school board, the superintendent of schools, 603 citizens, 56 community leaders, and 207 parents. Findings indicate that conflicting views of the principal's role are held both by the principals themselves and by the other populations studied. With the principal identified partly as an administrator and partly as a member of the teaching staff, he tends to be associated in part with each of the roles and not completely with either. This role ambiguity may lead to low morale and to ineffective performance by elementary school principals. Appendices include the elementary school principal role norm inventory and analyses of scores for self-expectations of principals, principals' perceptions of the expectations of others, and actual expectations of others. A related document is ED 014 126. (JK)
