Managing Your Schools: What's Ahead. Education U.S.A. Special Report.
National School Public Relations Association, Arlington, VA.
Today's schools are faced with a new challenge--namely, how they can be managed more effectively. This book evaluates concrete management plans such as Management By Objectives (MBO) and Zero-Base Budgeting and explains the principles that different systems work on, where they have been tried, how they have succeeded or not succeeded, and why. Detailed case studies are cited and charts illustrate the methods discussed. The book also offers alternatives for simplifying and updating existing types of management. Individual chapters deal with administrator training and school district policies, management methods, management approaches, personnel management, school-community relations, and school organization. The appendix offers a sample teacher evaluation form and a model superintendent contract. The book is written for superintendents, administrators, and school board members. (Author/LD)
