Feasibility Study and Analysis of the Administrative Management of the Harrisburg City School District. Reorganizing the Harrisburg Public Schools Project.
Maguire, Louis M.; And Others
This five-part document presents the results of a feasibility study on administrative reorganization commissioned by the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, School District. The first section describes the research design, the data collection techniques, and the involvement of Harrisburg personnel in the study. Section two provides nineteen generalizations derived from the data--ten of which had their source in administrative data, and nine in teacher data. These generalizations characterize the current administrative structure and operation. Section three presents the recommendations for administrative reorganization, especially recommending that Harrisburg adopt the superintendency team concept to effect organizational improvement. Section four suggests a three-year timetable for implementing administrative reorganization, and section five describes some of the factors that will determine the cost of the organizational change.
