The School Management Appraisal and Rating Technique Plan (SMART). One Answer to a Dilemma for Education Management.
Heddinger, Fred M.
Historically, administrator evaluation and the corresponding compensation for administrative salaries have been tied directly to teacher salaries. The old evaluation systems are inadequate, and education must find a more acceptable method of valuing various school management positions and paying for these responsibilities accordingly. One answer to the problem is the SMART plan. The plan is outlined as to its function with supporting examples, suggested forms, and a step-by-step explanation of its use and application. The plan utilizes a scale of 100 points for both valuing school management positions and appraising performance after having established such a value. It utilizes three simple forms and is based on the assumption that the school superintendent's position is one of maximum responsibility worth 100 points, while the least responsible supervisory position receives 25 points. Under the plan, once compensation for the two end points of the valuation system have been determined, all other supervisory positions are related accordingly. (JF)
