Abstract: In response to the public's demand for quality education, many state legislatures are mandating teacher performance evaluation for the purpose of improving instruction. A review of state legislated mandates and an analysis of the court decisions involving teacher evaluation issues indicate the school administrator has a direct responsibility in providing assistance for helping a teacher make improvements where necessary. This research was designed to determine the legal responsibilities of the school administrator in working with a teacher to make improvements. More specifically the study focused on the responsibility that the principal has in notifying the teacher that there is a problem and in providing an opportunity for the teacher to improve.
