The Organizational Structure of Public Schools.
Ortiz, Flora Ida
During the past decade, differentiation has taken place at an accelerating rate in all of the three major units of public schools (instruction, administration, and support services). The purpose of this study is to help administrators understand the total structure of school organization, particularly how support services complement the delivery of educational services to students. School organization and differentiation are described for schools at the elementary, middle or junior high, and high school levels. In addition, the organization and differentiation of special schools and district-wide services are described. The analysis is based on a review of descriptive personnel and organizational materials from 15 southern California school districts; observational trips to four of the districts to inspect location, size, and general physical characteristics of each of the three differentiated units; and a total of 25 interviews with school personnel representing differing levels and units.
