Accountability and the Kepler Public Schools. A Technical-Behavioral Analysis. Appendix A.
Levine, Donald M.; Hahn, Peter T.
This study examines the effectiveness of an accountability system--Alter--whose aim is to facilitate long-term planning. The purpose of the study was to develop a model that school systems can use in implementing accountability systems. The project explored the idea that when formal management systems are introduced into schools, they ignore individual reactions and thus elicit resistance. Questionnaires were distributed to the superintendent and his administrative staff, and interviews followed later. According to the report, the successful implementation of Alter depends on the ability of the organization's sentient system to sustain a level of sophisticated operation. (Author/LD)
