Abstract/Description:
This investigation studied the level of knowledge that principals have concerning the maintenance of their schools. A questionnaire was developed to address three research questions. These research questions were: (1) what is the extent that facilities maintenance is an important issue for school principals? (2) in what specific areas of facilities maintenance do principals lack knowledge? and (3) in what specific areas does the lack of facilities maintenance knowledge by principals exceed 30%? A questionnaire was developed to gather data to analyze comparative relationships to the research questions. Data indicated that principals do believe facilities maintenance is an important issue. Reponses to the questionnaire indicated most principals have a general understanding of facilities maintenance in its broadest sense. However, the data supported that most principals lack knowledge concerning the specific facilities maintenance information and issues. Recommendations were made to address the lack of knowledge principals have concerning facilities maintenance. Recommendations were also made for additional research in the area of the principal's knowledge concerning facilities maintenance.
