The recent move towards systemwide diversity in the Israelieducational system has made the structure of public schools increasinglycomplex and fragmented, and has greatly influenced many aspects of theprincipalship. Today, principals in public schools are moving towards adynamic definition of their role. Principals are being required to movefrom being routinemanagers to leadermanagers. This role change isreflected in four pivotal areas including resource allocation,organizational framework, governing system and market structure.Contrary to traditional roles, Israeli principals are increasinglyrequired to be environmental managers who mobilize resources and manageprofessional organizations with pluralistic governing systems in acompetitive market structure. The success of local school initiativesdepends upon principals abilities to adapt their roles to new realitiesinherent in such dynamic, diverse school networks.
