					Administrator Responsibilities



              Elementary Principals
              and Vice Principals
Elementary School Leadership

   Principal and Vice Principal job responsibilities are
    complex and at times overlap
   The need to prioritize tasks requires flexibility in the roles
   Responsibilities covered in the presentation may be
    handled by either principal or vice principal
   In the elementary schools 50-80 staff members directly
    report to the building level administrator
Elementary Structure

   Since team leaders or layers do not exist within the
    elementary school all staff must report directly to the
    building level administrator including:
    - teachers, teacher assistants, nurse, cafeteria aides,
      substitutes, secretaries, library clerks, supplemental
      services such as OT/PT, itinerant teachers, Child
      Study team members, etc, representing 50-80
      employees per building
   Additionally, in each school we work with:
    - An average of nearly 500 students
    - More than 1,000 parents
Changing Role

    administrators
