I currently attend a Catholic school, and the principal job is open. So far, I don't think anyone has applied. When the school year comes around, what happens if we don't have a principal? Will the school close down? Will the students have to go to another school? Before my old principal resigned, we had no vice principal. So, we have no principal nor do we have a vice principal as of right now. What will happen?
How long does a high school principal wait until he/she contacts a job applicant? I have e-mailed 3 different principals at the end of last week/beginning of this week about specific jobs that are posted on the district website.
Does the principal check my references first? Wait for a lot of applicants? Or is it just normal to wait a few weeks? I'm so nervous, checking my email all the time, haha!
If a kid freaks out in school is it the principals job to defuse the situation? is it the guidance counselors job?
Our school principal is leaving to take a job at another school. We were hoping to do a flash mob as a goodbye, so we need a song with a good back beat. Any ideas?
I would like to get there ASAP. I'm currently a senior in high school and
I not sure, but I think these are the steps I need to take: (1) Get my bachelor's degree in secondary education or english lit. (2) Immediately afterwards, get a Master's degree in teaching administration? (3) ?
So how can I become a high school principal after being a teacher,
and how long will it take? Thanks, and please be as detailed as you
possibly can be!

Can I at least get an internship possition? I cant find this info on the Web or the FLDOE wesite..does anyone know!
Our new school principal has been making cutbacks by laying off a bunch of teachers to save up to construct some new facilities on our campus. My art teacher was recently told that they were looking for someone to replace her, and if someone more qualified came along, she would be let go. She told me she's scared she's not going to come back next year. I want to help her keep her job, but I don't know how. She taught me a lot freshman year, and I've continued to work with her in a club she moderates that lets students create/donate portraits for veterans and their families. She's also the only teacher who teaches sculpture, and I know at least 50 students signed up to take that class next year.
She's a good person, she needs this job, and I know a lot of students would be upset if she left.
I was thinking I could do a petition, but I don't really know how that would help or how to start one. Is there any other way I could help her?
**i don't really know what category this would go under, so I'm just going to post this in a bunch of different categories until I get an answer
What is a better career-elementary school principal or ultrasound sonographer:
-which is a better career period?
-which pays more?
I am going to start an intership to become a School Principal. I hear a lot of complaints and many people say that Principals forget that they once were teachers too. What are important things that I should always remember when I become a school administrator?
I am writing a book in which one of the main characters is a high school principal in the province of Alberta, Canada. My question is how much education does he need to fill that role and how long would it take.
I want him to not be too old in relation to the other characters, but at the same time want him to have been in his position for a certain time. If he graduated high school at 18 and went to university the following fall, what is the youngest possible age he could have become principal.
I have asked this question before, and though I received a somewhat helpful answer from a nice contributor, it did not quite give me what I was looking for, so hopefully I can come up with something more concrete this time.
Thank you all in advance for your answers to my questions.
My goal is to be a high school principal. As I am researching my field I am reading that a person would have to be a high school teacher first. Do I have to go this route?
*Also, what are all the possibilities with a counseling degree? I understand counselor's don't make much money, although it is my passion I don't want to be broke.
How can I get closer to my high school principal? I may want to be a principal in the future so I want to be able to talk to him a lot about his job and whatever else. PLEASE ANSWER!!! THanks :D
Thanks Angelic and everyone who replied!
And Chloe, I accidenlty submitted it two times because it said that Yahoo was undergoing maintenance or something so I thought it didn't go through the first time.
Debra... what 'decision' are you even talking about?
Just heard on Rush radio show a school principal said govt wanted to know how many jobs were saved with the state Stim funds- He sent in 0 as his answer, govt sent it back said 0 was not accepted he had to provide numbers! So basically the govt was forcing him to LIE! This is HUGE! So how many other Schools were FORCED TO LIE about jobs saved with Obamastim funds! WOW! What losers we got in office!
In terms of job responsibilities, what is the difference between a superintendent and a school Principal ? Who reports to who? Who is the boss?
My current contract expires June 30th, how can I get a job by July 1st? How can I make my resume stand out from the rest?
I recently graduated with a BA in poli sci and have decided to pursue a career as a high school principal and eventually superintendent of a school district. I live in New York and while starting out as a teacher is the logical choice, with the degree I have chosen I would have to jump through many hoops in order to receive teacher certification. I was wondering if there was another route I could go.
I know a guy who is a high school principal. He makes $150K a year, works at a college and makes another $100K and works part time at another job. He claims he voted for Obama, but his wife quickly fixed his lie and made him look stupid when he actually voted McCain.
I know that school principals work year round, but there must be other positions that pay more than classroom teaching, and also let you have summer off.
My all time goal is to either become a College Professor of Mathematics or Actuary. My current major is Mathematics (I'm only a freshmen, so I have plenty of time to switch majors), but if all else fails, I wouldn't mind teaching high school math. I actually thought about doing that, but the pay is very low. Could I stick with my major in Mathematics and somehow get my teaching certification afterwards? I'm not sure if I can minor in Education at my current school but if so, I would definitely do it. The reason why I want to stay with majoring in just MATH and not MATH EDUCATION is because if I decide to become something in banking, finance, government, or anything that hires math majors, I would have a better shot of getting the job with a MATH undergrad degree rather than a MATH EDUCATION degree. Any suggestions? My high school principal was a criminal justice major but ended up becoming a history teacher and now is principal. I'm sure guidelines and rules have changed since then, though. Any suggestions?
I have been teaching for Biology 17 years and love the kids, but I don't feel challenged every day like I used to be when I first started out. I have won several awards as a teacher and am good at what I do, but wonder if the challenges and pay of the principal job would be worth the career change
