dc.description.abstractThis quantitative study examined the perceived wellness of Kansas K-12 public school building principals. Increased expectations at national, state, and local levels such as No Child Left Behind, budget cuts primarily due to declining enrollments, and funding issues have added to the pressures of stress involved with education today. Principals, as building leaders, feel these very real responsibilities as they represent the front line of their respective buildings dealing with these issues on a daily basis. This study investigated personal and professional factors to determine if they contributed to the overall wellness of these principals. A questionnaire was administered to a population of 310 Kansas principals. The questionnaire consisted of demographic items that asked for personal and professional factors and the Perceived Wellness Survey developed by Dr. Troy Adams, Arizona State University. The responses from the questionnaire were analyzed to answer the research questions. Major findings included significance between various aspects of perceived wellness with the following variables: (a) gender and psychological, social, and intellectual wellness, (b) age and spiritual, emotional, and intellectual wellness, (c) race/ethnicity with spiritual wellness and wellness composite scores, (d) marital status and wellness composite scores, (e) building enrollment and emotional wellness, and (f) building levels and emotional wellness.en
