This report contains the proceedings of the conference, which focused on the relationship between the administrator and the school board. Four authors discuss this relationship from different perspectives. Rolland W. Jones enumerates a number of hallmarks of the ideal relationship as he sees it. Frank Beinder presents the trustee's view of the most efficacious board/administrator relationship, and F. J. Gathercole does the same from an administrator's point of view. F.C. Thiemann gives an organizational model of the board/administrator relationship best suited to future education. A major theme of all four essays is that mutual respect, trust, and support between board members and superintendents are key elements in any successful educational organization. (Author/RA)
