Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop a profile of the black administrators in North Carolina local education administrative units, 1979. The study population was confined to all black administrators who held the position of superintendent, associate superintendent, assistant superintendent, or director. A sampling frame representing the 145 school districts in North Carolina was obtained through the State Department of Public Instruction on which were listed the name, address, sex, and position of all black administrators who met the specifications of the study. A six-part, 37-item survey instrument was designed for collecting the data to achieve the objectives of the study. Categories of characteristics sought were: personal data, professional experience, appointment status, role perception, role aspiration, and job environment. Of the 102 potential respondents, 74 returned usable survey instruments for a 75 percent response rate. The data were computer tabulated into simple frequency distributions to be used for descriptive purposes.
