    Historically, the role of the assistant principal has been hard to define because of the ambiguity and variations of the duties performed from one to school to another. In fact, Marshall et al. () characterized the assistant principal’s role as often “ ill-defined, inconsistent, and at times incoherent” (p. 7). The role of the assistant principal is a great deal more complex than most can conceive at first glance. As administrator you move from one thing to another in record time. Most of your day is not planned by you. You are responding to calls on the phone & the radio, potential disruptions to safety, impromptu visits and complaints.

    What is the role? The Assistant Principal is a senior managerial grade in the Civil Service. The role is extremely diverse, citizen driven and very rewarding. The exact nature of the role varies depending on the sector and Department/Office in which the vacancy arises.   For further information on this topic, pick up Principal Kafele’s newest book, The ASPIRING Principal Critical Questions for New and Future School Leaders (ASCD, ) at and be on the lookout for his June, release, The ASSISTANT Principal Critical Questions for Meaningful Leadership and Professional Growth.

      A great assistant principal will actively seek ways to improve his/her position. This can be accomplished through off-site professional development, book studies, and peer mentoring. Since we are in the business to educate, it is critical that our actions reflect the need for all adults to be lead-learners and always willing to grow and learn. This edited book highlights the importance and complexity of the assistant principalship. As noted in all the chapters, the assistant principal is a critical partner in creating a professional learning community that serves all students well.
