THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTER.
MINER, JOHN B.
TO DETERMINE MAJOR FACTORS AFFECTING SELECTION AND PERFORMANCE OF SUPERVISORS IN SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS, DATA WERE ANALYZED FROM A SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR EVALUATION FORM FOR 219 ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL (79.3 PERCENT OF 276 TOTAL), REPRESENTING LARGE CITY, MEDIUM CITY, SMALL CITY, AND CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. APPLYING TECHNIQUES USED IN THE ANALYSIS OF BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONS, THE STUDY REVEALED THAT CRITERIA FOR SELECTION OF SCHOOL SUPERVISORS ARE DETERMINED BY JOB PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR THE POSITION AND ESPECIALLY BY THE KIND OF DISTRICT CONCERNED. THIS LEADS TO THE FORMULATION OF "ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE" AS A DETERMINING VARIABLE IN THE SELECTION OF SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL FOR A PARTICULAR DISTRICT. DESCRIPTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR INDICES OF SUPERVISOR EFFECTIVENESS, AS INDICATED BY ORGANIZATIONAL REWARD (GRADE LEVEL ASSIGNMENT AND SALARY) AND OVERALL POTENTIAL FOR ACHIEVEMENT (BIOGRAPHICAL FACTORS, VERBAL ABILITY, INNER LIFE ORIENTATION, CONFORMITY, CREATIVITY, INNOVATION, AND MANAGERIAL, WORK, AND SOCIAL MOTIVATIONS).
