School Based Management.
Beers, Donald E.
To implement School Based Management (SBM) in Charleston County, South Carolina, the school district was reorganized to include a management team to make shared decisions on all phases of district activities. Local schools were required to develop short and long range plans that encouraged needs assessment, goal identification, strategy development, program implementation, and evaluation. Pilot programs involving 20 schools have included a local school management team made up of the principal, teachers, parents, and community support persons; training in management practices for the principals and the teams; and a liaison person who works with the school team and the district to facilitate program development. In some of the 50 schools not yet involved with SBM, other programs have begun that are consistent with the SBM philosophy, such as a building conservation incentive program and a program to reduce the number of teacher absences.
