Dickinson, William E., Ed.
This report, the result of five NSBA workshops on performance contracting, provides guidelines to assist school boards in meeting public demands for accountability. Part I explains the broad concept of accountability, describes the mechanics of a performance contract, and outlines a model approach for "turnkeying" a successfully completed contract to the regular school staff. Part II presents teacher and administrator reactions to performance contracts, and Part III provides guideline questions summarized from conference workpapers. (Author/JF)
