The Board and the School System Administrative Team.
Shannon, Thomas A.
According to this paper, all parties in educational management--central office and building administrators, supervisory and curriculum personnel, as well as the board--should participate fully in the business of managing a school district. But before enacting a new policy, an enlightened board will consider the impact that the policy could have on the school system's pupils, educational programs, personnel, and budget. The paper suggests certain things board members can do to enhance a management leadership team. They can serve as agents of change, seeking advice from the entire team. They can insist that all levels of management be included in the decision-making process of the district. Finally, a board can encourage management training and skills development of school administrators. The paper concludes with a discussion of the attitude of the National School Boards Association toward involvement of administrators in all levels of policy-making. (Author/LD)
