Principles of Effective School District Governance and Administration.
American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National School Boards Association, Alexandria, VA.
The first part of this publication delineates, in capsule form, the responsibilities of superintendents and other members of an administrative team. Thereafter, seven basic principles are presented that contribute to a sound, productive relationship between school boards and administrators: (1) a specific written description of administrators' professional duties and responsibilities; (2) the assurance of a thorough and regular evaluation of professional performance; (3) the opportunity to participate in administrative staff inservice training; (4) the expectation of proper review before the school board prior to dismissal, demotion, or nonrenewal; (5) compensation in accordance with established salary procedures; (6) a voice for administrators in the development and implementation of all policies; and (7) appropriate recognition due a member of a respected profession (professional associations can help).
