Superintendent-Community Relationship in the United States and Alaska.
Chand, Krishan
A national study of superintendents reveals that most superintendents (89.6 percent) consider their relationship with the community to be very important, and most (63.5 percent) spend a great deal of time on that relationship. There is a positive correlation between the importance superintendents assign to their relationship to the community and 24 task variables. A study in Alaska revealed that all (100 percent) superintendents surveyed consider their community relations very important and that most (60.8 percent) spend much time maintaining these relations. In Alaska there is a positive correlation between the importance superintendents assign to their relationship with the community and six task variables. Personal experiential variables (age, race, sex, etc.) appear to have no effect on the importance the superintendents assign to their relationship with the community, or how much time they spend on it, in either the nationwide or the Alaskan study. The paper provides a list of 15 strategies for community relations to be used by superintendents, 12 tables, and a short bibliography. (MD)
