School Board Self-Assessment. Leader's Manual. Keys to School Boardsmanship. A Program of Continuing Education for School Board Members.
Wolfe, Leslie G.
The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present workshops for school board members on a process of self-assessment for the school board or the district management team. Two levels of workshop are treated: the first level is designed for presentation in a large group format and introduces the concepts relevant to self-assessment; the second level is intended to provide technical assistance to individual school boards in preparing for and conducting the feedback sessions called for by the self-assessment process. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshops; a selection of resource materials; and booklets for workshop participants. The discussion of planning covers the focus and scope of the workshop, familiarization with relevant materials (including the format of the manual), and the grouping of participants. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities, leader focuses for each activity, and instructions for conducting the activities. The resource materials provided include papers explaining the self-assessment process and discussing the four central functions of the school board, and masters from which transparencies can be reproduced for projection at the workshops.
