The Role and Impact of the Mathematics Specialist from the Principals' Perspectives

Abstract

The authors report on the first phase of a parallel utilization study to determine school district and policy implementation issues associated with the introduction of Mathematics Specialists in elementary schools. Identified themes providing the most helpful information about implementation and school-level decision making regarding the use of Mathematics Specialists are: 1) the role of the principal in integrating the Specialist into the school; 2) the Specialist's actual activities compared with the Mathematics Specialist definition; 3) teacher improvement and retention; 4) diverse learners; 5) parent and community interaction; and, 6) the principal's expectations for the second year--2006-2007.
