Abstract: The objective of this case study was to describe the diffusion of an electronic mail system in a public school administrative setting. The study focused on four variables: 1) principal leadership style, 2) participant readiness for change, 3) rate of adoption, and 4) effectiveness of the system. The study group was composed of twelve members of a public high school. Perceptions of principal leadership style were assessed for each participant. Readiness levels of change were determined for each individual. The effectiveness of the electronic mail system was rated for various categories by participants. And, the rate of adoption over the span of the study was recorded. An exploration of these variables in association with the diffusion process was the primary focus. Descriptive data as well as correlation figures were used to describe and discuss the findings.
