Information was collected from principals, secretaries and teachers regarding their perceptions of the elementary schoo l secretary's role. Participants· were from three central Florida counties. The instrument for data collection was a survey form consisting of secretarial duties/responsibilities/attributes gleaned from a variety of sources. Participants' perceptions were tallied by means of a modified Li kert Scale. Tallied responses were analyzed statistically in comparison to six null hypotheses which were proposed. Three statistical procedures were employed in the data analysis. These procedures consisted of: (1) analysis of variance, (2) chi-square goodness of fit, and (3) Pearson Product Moment correlation. The .05 level of significance was used for determination of significant differences. Significant differences were obtained indicating a need for meaningful job descriptors and better understanding of the role of the secretary.
