Summary

This report contains the results of a survey of 1,156 Oregon school administrators intended to ascertain what causes them stress and how they cope with it. The first part of the report briefly reviews stress categories, indicating which general areas of administration prove to be the most bothersome. The second investigates specific sources of stress (stressors) and lists the ten most stressful tasks for all administrators, as well as examining why some job assignments are particularly stressful to some administrator groups and not to others. Part three examines the relationship found between stress and the health of Oregon school administrators and lists some of the means of coping with stress named by the respondents. The researchers discovered that the administrators listed complying with state, federal, and organizational rules and policies as the most frequent source of stress, followed by feeling that meetings take up too much time. The researchers call for new methods to teach administrators how to better cope with job-related stress. (Author/DS)
