dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine if the student-to-administrator ratio in a school was related to student achievement as well as to examine the duties a principal delegated to others to determine if a pattern existed between principals of high and low performing high schools in regard to duties kept versus duties delegated. While the results of this study did not find one overall recommendation for a student-to-administrator ratio, it did determine that there are certain duties principals of high achieving schools did not delegate as compared to principals of schools with lower achievement. This study also produced a comprehensive description of the 51 duties of a high school principal and provides a recommendation for which duties may be most valuable for the principal to keep and which duties could be delegated to other personnel. en_US
