The current research was created with the purpose of examining the perception of special education teachers about whether there is a correspondence between the administrative tasks inherent in their profession and the educational progress of the students they serve. The study sample consisted of 90 PRDE public school teachers from a school district in the center of the island, with the following characteristics: being active as a special education teacher, having a special education teacher certificate and, at least, one year of teaching experience. The study was carried out was a quantitative one, not experimental, with a descriptive design, with a correlational nuance. The objective was to explore the perception of teachers about administrative work and its impact on their educational performance, determine how administrative tasks affect the academic progress of students at different levels and location alternatives, and know the suggestions they offer to reduce the administrative workload. The results were analyzed through the program for SPSS and SmartPLS statistics. After the data analysis process, the researcher used the information gathered to answer the three research questions. The results of the investigation showed that the participants of this study perceive that there is a correspondence that implies a relationship between administrative tasks and educational progress, because they negatively affect the academic achievement of the students. In addition, teachers think that attending meetings and conducting IEP reviews affects the instructional time and the individualization process. Subsequently, the recommendations for PRDE are presented.
