Independent School Administration.
Springer, E. Laurence
This book deals with the management of privately supported schools and offers guidelines on how these schools might be operated more effectively and economically. The discussions and conclusions are based on observations and data from case studies of independent school operations. The subjects discussed include the role and organization of governing boards, their relationships to the administrative head of the school, the administrative structure and arrangements for internal management, financial planning and controls over expenditures, and sound business practices. Also discussed are (1) the role of the faculty, (2) the problem of adequate compensation for the teaching staff, (3) the relationships with the alumni and the public, and (4) the problems of fund raising. Appendixes include sample maintenance forms and an excerpt of professional standards covering relationships between school heads and boards of trustees. (Author/JF)
