School principals supervise and facilitate the daily operations of private or schools. Their duties include working with other school district and state education officials, establishing and implementing academic goals and curricula and allocating financial resources. High school principals may also attend outside-of-school events, meet with parents or oversee disciplinary activities, which can extend their work weeks well beyond 40 hours. They may be assisted in their duties by assistant principals and other support staff who help them achieve their goals.
