A Model Program to Reduce Paperwork at the Local Level.
Hertzke, Eugene R.
The mutual efforts of committees of the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), the Washington Association of School Business Officials (WASBO), and the state's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to reduce, control, and manage the flow of paperwork to and from local school districts are reported here. In the first year of this effort the number of forms required was reduced by over one third. A formal process for coordinating the information requests of different offices was instituted. Problem areas in specific forms were analyzed, and agencies inside and outside OSPI requiring high amounts of paperwork were identified. Of particular interest was the fact that local districts created as much paperwork as did the state level agencies. The author, chairman of the WASA committee, concludes with a discussion of successes in paperwork control in his own district and with a presentation of an outline of OSPI's recommendations for local district paperwork management.
