Developing an Effective Board-Administrative Team.
Martin, David B.
It is beneficial to identify three administrative teams through linking pins: the principal is the linking pin between the instructional team and the administrative team; the superintendent is the linking pin between the administrative team and the policy team, which includes the board of education; the administrative team consisting of all administrators plus the policy team is known as the management team. Reasons for a management team include recent power shifts between employers and employees, increasing pressure on administrators, and the need for more effective decisions. In instituting a management team, a redefined role is necessary for all parties concerned. Important components of an administrative team are effective communication, support of administrators by the board, an opportunity for administrators to select agenda items and supply input to policy-making, and a fair procedure for determining administrator salaries.
