A NEW ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM FOR STATE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, A RECOMMENDED RESPONSE TO EMERGING REQUIREMENTS FOR CHANGE IN CALIFORNIA. A REPORT TO THE CALIFORNIA STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.
HALBOWER, CHARLES C.; AND OTHERS
DERIVED FROM AN ANALYSIS OF FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND ASSIGNED RESPONSIBILITIES, A NEW ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM RELYING UPON MANAGERIAL CAPABILITIES AND CAPACITY FOR CHANGE IS PROPOSED BY A TEAM OF PROFESSIONAL CONSULTANTS TO COPE SUCCESSFULLY WITH PROBLEMS AND STRESSES CONFRONTING THE CALIFORNIA STATE SYSTEM OF EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION. SEVEN BROADLY DEFINED MAJOR FUNCTIONS INCLUDE SENSING EMERGING NEEDS, ASSIGNING PRIORITIES AND ALLOCATING RESOURCES, DISSEMINATING INFORMATION REGARDING NEW INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS, AND ASSURING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATIONAL OFFERINGS IN ACCORDANCE WITH LEGISLATIVE MANDATES AND STATE BOARD REGULATIONS. AN ORGANIC DIAMOND GRID CHART INCORPORATING INHERENT FLEXIBILITY PORTRAYS THE INTERDEPENDENCE AMONG COMPONENT ELEMENTS OF THE NEW ORGANIZATION, WITH FUNCTIONAL ATTRIBUTES CUSTON-DESIGNED TO CARRY OUT THE MISSIONS OF THE ORGANIZATION. SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE FOR ESTABLISHING MAJOR PROGRAMS (COMPENSATORY EDUCATION, DEPARTMENTAL DEVELOPMENT AND LONG-RANGE PLANNING, DISTRICT DEVELOPMENT, AND EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION DISSEMINATION) AND A NEW AGENCY FOR STATE-LEVEL ADMINISTRATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE EDUCATION. OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE PERSONNEL ASSIGNMENTS, RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, AND ORGANIZATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MAJOR DIVISIONS (GENERAL EDUCATION, VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, SPECIAL EDUCATION, AND FISCAL AND BUSINESS MANAGEMENT SERVICES) AS WELL AS FOR PERSONNEL, INFORMATION, AND DEPARTMENTAL SUPPORTING SERVICES.
