A Study of Organizational Alternatives for Chelmsford Public Schools.
Lavin, Richard J.
The focus of this report is on the functions of the curriculum coordinator in the Chelmsford Public Schools. The role of coordinator came into being as a response to a particular set of needs. An analysis of the changing nature of those needs provided a basis for deciding whether the coordinator role should be continued in its present form; continued in a new form; have its component tasks, functions, and relationships divided up and made part of other preexisting or newly created roles; or abandoned totally. The report analyzes the school system's needs for leadership along two dimensions: the changing instructional program and the changing needs of the system's administrative team. It then presents three alternative plans for meeting system needs. Data presented for each plan include the position changes entailed, organization under the plan, qualitative differences, and the budget. A bibliography on school organization and secondary schools is included. (Author/DN)
