It was the purpose of this study to: 1. Define what the community or Ellensburg, Washington (school board, administration, and teachers) expect the activity director to accomplish or provide for the high school students. 2. Investigate the role of the vice-principal and/or activity director, and particularly those duties that authorities feel should be the duties of anyone who is in charge of the extracurricular program. 3. Investigate the high school activity program in order to see how and what the activity director could do to perform his duties so that he can administer the program in the best possible way; providing leadership and having the kind of relations with the students, faculty and administration that will result in the best educational results from the activity program. 4. Develop a plan of action which I can follow during the next year which will provide a basis for evaluation and improvement during the year and for the following year. It is hoped that in some way this study will be helpful to others who will become activity directors.
