In recent years the importance of an adequately trained elementary-school principal has been recognized by many of our school officials. Because of this recognition the State Department of Public Instruction in South Dakota is increasing its requirements for an Elementary-School Principal’s Administrative certificate. Effective July 1, 1955, the above certificate will be issued to elementary-school principals who devote and one-half or more of their time to administration and supervision, and who have earned nine semester hours of graduate credit in the field of administration, supervision, and guidance, with a minimum of two semester hours of credit in each field. The applicant must also hold a valid high school certificate and must have had one year of successful teaching experience in grades one through eight. It is the purpose of this study to provide a clearer picture of the status and function of the elementary-school principal in South Dakota.
