Booz, Allen and Hamilton, Inc., Chicago, IL.
This final report of a management consultant firm details 11 major recommendations to improve the public elementary and secondary school system in Wyoming. (1) The State should articulate objectives to serve as guidelines for public school education. (2) The State Department of Education (SDE) should be administered through a management-by-objectives approach. (3) The State superintendent of public instruction should be an appointive rather than an elective position. (4) Programs and services of the SDE should be modified to meet public school objectives and the needs of the Wyoming citizens more adequately. (5) The department should be structurally reorganized. (6) Utilization of the professional staff should be maximized. (7) Coordination among the school districts can be improved. (8) Within the districts themselves, minimum school unit size by attendance would improve the educational services of the districts. (9) Personnel positions and salaries should match responsibilities and compare with those in other States. (10) Multistate and intrastate educational agencies should cooperate. (11) The cooperation of educational organizations within Wyoming should be sought. [Exhibits on pp. 17a-17c may be of poor quality when reproduced in hard copy.] (LN)
