Abstract

This study looks at the impact of information technology on the role of the high school principal. Findings suggest that the introduction of a management information system into the school resulted in changes in the clerical, managerial control, and strategic aspects of the principal’s role. Forty-three tasks representative of this role were investigated, all belonging to five domains: instruction administration, instructional processes, interactions between groups and individuals, school finance and logistical support, and interactions with groups and institutions in the community.
