Structure, Decision-Making, and Communication in the Waterloo County School System. An Evaluation Report.
Greenfield, T. Barr; And Others
The investigation for this study relied heavily on interviews. The authors talked to trustees, the director, assistant director, business administrator, the divisional superintendents and their assistants, area superintendents, business officials, consultants, principals, and teachers. In addition to the interviews, the authors observed administrator meetings. The findings indicate a sense of satisfaction with the present structure and the decision making process in the school system. However, the findings also point to a substantial body of opinion that holds that the time has come for some significant changes. The report describes how a number of decisions are made in the school system, discusses a number of problems, using peoples' expressed concerns about the operation of the system, and analyze key issues that underlie many of the basic problems in the operation of the system. A final section outlines the current structure of the Waterloo school system and presents two alternative structures recommended by the authors. (JF)
