Early secondary schools were relatively small and made few demands on the principal's time. With the growth of the schools the responsibilities of the principal have grown proportionately. As these responsibilities increased, it became necessary for him to share these duties with an assistant. This assistant began taking over routine activities mostly those of a clerical nature. As the schools continued to grow he began assuming duties in the realm of supervision and administration. To be effective he needed to be as dedicated, as perceptive and as well trained as the principal himself.
