An inquiry into the expectations of principals and deputy principals in public schools in WA will be held in Kalgoorlie-Boulder in just under two months.

This is part of a wide-ranging inquiry, backed by the State School Teachers Union WA, which started in Perth yesterday, looking at issues surrounding leaders of public schools.

This will include the adequacy of support systems and the attraction and retention of experienced principals and deputy principals.

Inquiry hearings will be heard across the State, with the Kalgoorlie-Boulder hearing on April 10.

The four-person committee, headed by Fran Hinton, former chief executive of the ACT Department of Education, is set to report its findings by May 17.
