Because of their breadth of experience and the opportunities they have to see facilities and equipment in a variety of school systems, supervisors very quickly become knowledgeable in this area.
In addition to their regular duties, they are often assigned to help plan new facilities and to recommend renovations and changes in old ones.
They may have the responsibility for regular inspection of equipment for safety and sanitation. They may also be asked to supervise the taking inventories and to make recommendations for the purchase of new equipment.
They are frequently requested to recommend procedures for the care, repair, and issuance of physical education equipment.
Throughout all efforts toward the improvement of facilities and equipment, the one essential question should always be, “Will this enhance the instruction of the pupils?” Supervisors must resist the undue influence of people and those with only their own business interests at heart.
