The principal, HOD, Director, Rector, chancellor or principal have the greatest responsibility for school administration.
Most directors not only take administrative tasks, but also teach various subjects. You must control all academic and extracurricular activities, control the practice of school discipline, and of course direct the school.
Work doesn’t just end here. School leaders must also recruit staff (teachers, support staff, and administrative staff), manage school budgets, document student achievements, and report to the school board.
Principals are present in all different schools: public, private, daily or boarding schools, secular or religious schools.
You don’t just become a teacher overnight. It requires a lot of preparation and experience in teaching and as a team leader.
You must ensure that teachers work according to the curriculum and specific ideals, rules and principles of the school.
Principals Primary Responsibilities:
– Extensive academic training and professional preparation
– Strong interpersonal, communication and leadership skills
– Strong sense of empathy and compassion ( especially being able to work within a multicultural environment)
– Optimistic, enthusiastic, can do – attitude, and a strong ability to motivate others
– High levels of creativity, initiative, flexibility and responsiveness
– Strong technology skills and the ability to apply them as an instructional tool to support learning
With the help of the school administration system, data can be easily stored and evaluated. This reduces paper waste and makes many tasks easier. Imagine the urgency and you need to find the contact details of the child’s parents / guardians. Scrolling thousands and thousands of pages is definitely not the perfect solution and takes too long. Imagine all stress and fear. However, in the school management system, all you have to do is enter the name or ID of the student in the search box, and don’t have all the information you need.
Principals may not walk from one side of the school to the other to collect or provide information. With just one click, things like attendance or costs can be displayed. These systems have proven themselves to be more than that, especially in critical times. Teacher profiles can be saved, edited and viewed as needed.
Transparency between school and parents has never been easier. Satisfied parents are one of the biggest components of successful principals and thus successful schools.
Everyday challenges faced by directors can now be met anywhere. This alone helps overcome one of the biggest challenges. Reconciliation of personal and professional life. No need to spend 18 hours at school. Have normal work hours and leave the rest at home if necessary.
It’s just a brief description of the things that must be handled by the director and how difficult this job really is. I feel that some people, especially parents, do not pay enough credit for them. I’m not a principal at all, so some things might be missing, but I think everything is clear.
A director faces many challenges, but with technology, you don’t have to do it alone.
