The purpose of this study was to examine multi-track Year-Round Education (YRE) elementary school principals' perceptions of the effects of YRE on their instructional leadership activities.

A review of the related literature revealed that principals perceived that multi-track YRE has increased their management activities. A questionnaire was developed and sent to a selected sample of 105 principals who served at multi-track (60-20 calendar) YRE elementary schools with grade level configurations of K-5 and K-6. In addition. the principals selected for this study had prior experience as principal s of traditional calendar schools and were assigned full-time administrative assistance (e.g., vice-principal. assistant principal, or equivalent). Ten of 64 principals who returned completed questionnaires were interviewed.
