Why are you asking us how to run a school, when you presumably told the interview panel you could do this work??
I am really struggling to understand how you obtained this job if you do not know what it is you are supposed to be doing.
If I am understanding this correctly, you have been appointed as Principal of a school, and you have almost no clue as to what you are supposed to do. I am also sumising that you have never run a school before, or even been an assistant principal in a school. Is that a fair summary of the situation?
There are a few jobs I can think of that I would love to do, but do not have the qualifications, skills or experience to do. Being a member is CiteHR has given me a wonderful insight into recruitment practices in India. I really think I should move over there as soon as possible, and then I can get my dream job easily.
I don't mean to sound harsh, but this just completely baffles me.

CBSE school has their own norms n affiliations by laws , you have to go thru it very carefully and have to meet their needed requirements to run your show successfully. I m working with CBSE school from last 10 Years as HR - Admin Head , if you need any help , please contact me.
Hope you are doing great, And to continue the same you are not supposed to be the same as you were.
Because, being same will make you same as other same domain people, to not to be SAME you need to do more things in same manner too.
