A PILOT PLAN FOR EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN RHODE ISLAND, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MODEL FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION IN A REGION OF RHODE ISLAND.
OSTRANDER, RAYMOND H.; AND OTHERS
A MODEL FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION IN RHODE ISLAND IS PROPOSED AS A PILOT PLAN FOR EDUCATION LEADERSHIP. SEVEN SCHOOL COMMITTEES AND FIVE SUPERINTENDENTS ARE ADMINISTERING THE SEVEN RHODE ISLAND DISTRICTS WHICH COVER AN AREA OF 22 SQUARE MILES. THIS DIFFUSION OF EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES WITHIN THE SMALL AREA AFFECTS THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE SYSTEMS CAN FULFILL DESIRED OBJECTIVES AND PROHIBITS AN OPTIMUM BALANCE BETWEEN INVESTMENT AND RETURN. IN AN ATTEMPT TO REMEDY THIS PROBLEM, A BOSTON UNIVERSITY SURVEY TEAM DEVELOPED A MODEL, WHICH RECOMMENDED THAT THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION ESTABLISH A PILOT EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP CENTER TO PROVIDE SERVICES NOT READILY AVAILABLE TO THE SEPARATE DISTRICTS, SUCH AS ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING AND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES. THE CENTER IS TO SERVE AS A SOURCE OF EDUCATIVE RESOURCES AND IS TO BE ADMINISTERED BY A FULL-TIME EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT ADVISER. THE PLAN AVOIDS DISRUPTION OF LOCAL AUTONOMY AND SECURES THE BENEFITS OF A LARGER, SPECIALIZED DISTRICT. (GB)
