Management Analysis in the Chicago Public Schools.
Hannon, Joseph P.; And Others
The four projects in management analysis described in this report are interrelated parts of a planning and development scheme in selected areas of the Chicago public school system. One project, the long-range system-wide planning process, is the means whereby the school system determines its multi-year priorities. A recommended strategy for implementation of the process is included in this report. Building-level information is provided in the school profiles project, in such areas as staffing, teacher characteristics, class size, program budgeting, school safety and environment. These profiles are used to assess trends and make comparisons between schools as well as being utilized in the goal setting process by administrators. The management development program, on the other hand, provides a means to reduce costs and improve the quality of education services by improving the management skills of school personnel. The project encompasses ten tasks which involve indentifying each job task, forecasting employment needs, and developing job-related instructional programs for personnel. The research on long run changes in the composition of the labor force in the Chicago public schools will provide critical information on staffing trends for the management development program.
