The aim of this research is to examine teachersâ€™ attitudes about principalsâ€™ communicational job. Secondary aim is to examine whether number of shifts, number of students, teachersâ€™ level of education and teachers daily and weekly workload predict teachers attitudes about principalsâ€™ communicational jobs principals perform. Sample consists of school teachers (N=80) that covered ISCED 1, 2 and 3, educational level from the Republic of Croatia. Sample is intentional and occasional, and present experienced teachers suitable for this type of research. The scale constructed for this research has been extracted from the scale for principalsâ€™ role estimation constructed by Burcar (2010). Findings show existence of principalsâ€™ communicational jobs in the schools as informing, reporting and verbal communication. Gender differences in the scale exist and in the subscale for verbal communication as well. In the prognosis toward principalsâ€™ communicational jobs the level of teachersâ€™ education has statistically significant but negative predictive value.
