dc.description.abstractIn their role as organizational leader, school principals may confront issues of professional isolation that can lead to feelings of loneliness. The purpose of this study was to determine if principals’ perceptions of social support were predictive of levels of loneliness. Using a survey instrument, data were collected to determine participants’ perception of social support and level of loneliness. Data analysis determined that perceived social support acted as a moderate, negative predictor of loneliness. Further analysis identified perceived support from teachers as being a stronger predictor than perceived support from either superintendents or other principals. The discussion concludes with the possibility for greater appraisal support for principals in the form of constructive performance feedback. Recommendations for further research are given.
