Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The role of the principal is demanding and complex, with many of the activities requiring significant expenditures of time. Among these are supervising both the support and professional staffs, disciplining students, developing the master class schedule, directing activities, hiring and firing staff, serving as instructional leader, and evaluating teacher performance. Supervising and evaluating teacher performance may be the most important of all these responsibilities however, because it gives the principal an opportunity to help teachers improve teaching performance. A principal should be able to help the teacher develop more productive teaching techniques. A school is eventually only as good as its teachers, and the person ultimately responsible for teacher performance is the principal.
