  • I wish we did. We have one principal for 3 elementary schools, but she's always on hand if she's needed.

  • No we share our principal with another school. She is at our school 2 1/2 days a week and at the other school 2 1/2 days. Both schools are small and have tons of parental involvement so no real discipline issues or other problems they have to deal with day to day. There had not been a child in any real trouble in a couple months. If we were in a big city I would want one there full time since there would be more discipline issues and other problems. If something comes up the principal goes to the school they are needed at or the Vice Principal who is also shared by the school can step in.

  • Here the schools have a principal and AP (at min) if for whatever reason all adminstrators need to be out of the building there is usually a designee... also they are "on-call" even if not actually in the building at all times.
