Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the status, the personal and professional background and the future plans of the women who were employed in the central administrative offices of North Carolina's public schools. Questionnaires were mailed to 471 women who were listed in the Education Directory, 1977-78. A total of 346 usable responses was returned and tabulated. A chi-square analysis was made to determine the relationship between variables of position, age, salary, degrees earned, plans for further study and years in the position. The major findings of the study included: Positions held by the women included those of superintendent, assistant and associate superintendents, directors of instruction, supervisors, directors of special projects and directors with various titles. The largest group was general and subject area supervisors who comprised 50.4 percent. The top-level positions, superintendent, assistant superintendent and associate superintendent, were held by 5.5 percent of those responding.
