The researcher's field study experience was serving an internship with Phil Smith, Assistant Principal of Operations at Danville High School in Danville Consolidated School District #118, Danville, Illinois.
The purpose of the internship was to become more familiar with the duties and responsibilities of the Assistant Principal of Operations at Danville High School. The following report consists of four chapters, which are listed below with a short summary of each.
Chapter I is the Introduction. The Introduction explains the researcher's rationale for selecting the Assistant Principal of Operations position for an internship. Also included in Chapter I is the procedure the researcher had to go through in order to gain clearance from his superiors in Danville Consolidated School District #118 to conduct the field study. The researcher briefly described the person who currently fulfills the position of Assistant Principal of Operations at Danville High School in Chapter I.
Chapter II is entitled "Observation Log." Although the researcher met weekly with the Assistant Principal of Operations, it was felt that the researcher could best benefit from this internship by spending an entire day with Phil Smith at Danville High School and follow in his foot steps. Chapter II is a log of the events that took place on that day.
Chapter III was written about the Assistant Principal of Operations position at Danville High School and how it relates to his job description and evaluation document. Those topics discussed in this chapter are (1) Staff Evaluations, (2) School Calendar, (3) Danville High School Custodians, and (4) Catch All. Each area listed goes into detail about the involvement of the Assistant Principal of Operations in relation to each of these areas.
Chapter IV is a Summary of the report and internship. The Summary has included the Assistant Principal's relationship to the Principal of Danville High School. Also mentioned are problems that arise in relation to his position to other administrators and staff in the school district.
