This study investigates the challenges, responses, and the importance of socialization in public high schools and the context of principal succession in specific contexts as well as how these contexts affect succession. Additionally, investigation into transition assistance is also studied. The concern is not the rationale for the candidates' reasons to change positions or schools or districts; rather to focus on the succession, as defined as the first year. The purpose of the study is to assist districts in providing better transition assistance, and to better prepare those principals who wish to have a smooth and successful first year.
