San Diego Unified School District, CA.; International Management Training for Educational Change, Oslo (Norway).
This document describes the organization, systems of management and governance, and financing of the San Diego Unified School District, serving over 122,000 students in California. The first chapter reviews the services provided by the district: instructional services, incorporating instructional personnel and programs; support service, including maintenance, secretarial, and other systems required for day-to-day operation of the district; and general services, the administrative and policy-making arm of the district. The second chapter discusses management and governance of the district, describing the organizational structure, factors affecting the development of that structure (such as district growth and both internal and external pressures), and issues that must be met by that structure (such as collective bargaining, legislation, and long-range planning). The final chapter explains district finances, identifying sources of income, restrictions on use of revenue, current issues affecting financing, and major aspects of district financial planning for the years 1976-1980. Extensive appendixes include the operating policies of the district's board of education, a policy statement guiding the superintendent's dealings with other governmental bodies, sample organizational charts for divisions and departments, a section of the district's administrative procedures manual, and samples of job descriptions for district personnel.
