The Board's Role in Selecting the Administrative Team. The Administrative Team Career Development Series, Book 3.
American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
As an aid for school board members, this handbook offers advice on selecting central-office and building administrators. The introduction discusses the board's role in administrator selection, lists 16 areas in which board policies are needed, and suggests criteria and information needed for board policies. Chapter 1 reviews recent changes in the educational administration team and describes 16 types of administrative positions, involving the areas of personnel, staff development, public relations, business, transportation, food service, buildings and grounds, energy, library and media services, research, community education, government programs, curriculum and instruction, pupil personnel services, and elementary and secondary principals. Chapter 2 explains four steps in hiring administrators. The steps involve (1) planning the selection process, including setting board policies, administrative needs, organizational arrangements, timetables, responsibilities, and contract provisions; (2) recruiting candidates, involving recruitment materials, application forms, and job descriptions and announcements; (3) selection, including application processing and screening, interviewing, and making the final choice; and (4) employing the new administrator. Eight appendices present sample board policies, organizational charts, and information forms, as well as guidelines, laws, and executive orders on hiring practices. (RW)
