Gover, David B.
A prototype policy operation manual for the school-based decision-making councils of elementary schools in the school districts of Kentucky is presented in ths document. Guidelines are offered to help the councils adopt policies consistent with the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990, which are based on school improvement and extended ownership. The roles of key players--the board of education, superintendents, principals, teachers, parents, and support staff--are described. Standards are also suggested for the following areas: school-based management implementation; decision-making methods; the mechanics and structure of the school council; council responsibilities; recording procedures; insurance and legal service; enrollment guidelines; and communication with other educational stakeholders. Definitions and sample notices to teachers and the public are also included. (LMI)
