A Strategy for Implementing the School Management Team.
Ohio School Boards Association, Columbus.
To aid school administrators, this guidebook presents information on planning, implementing, and evaluating a school management team approach. The first section reviews the definition and philosophy of the management team, discusses propositions about and characteristics of management teams, and describes the application of team decision-making to problem diagnosis and the generation, evaluation, and choice of solutions. Section 2 outlines four step-by-step processes to help school boards, superintendents, and planning committees initiate the team concept, conduct a district self-assessment, plan the formation of a management team, and monitor and evaluate the team system. Descriptions of each step and checklists of activities are included. The final section looks at various policy considerations for the development of a management team plan, such as job descriptions and administrator evaluations, contracts, and compensation. A selected bibliography is followed by seven appendices providing management team models, information sources, and examples of timelines, monitoring and assessment instruments, and policy statements.
