Accountability, It's People and It's Systems: PPbS. Education Monograph No. 4.
Pell, Carroll J.
This booklet is designed primarily as an instructional manual for staff inservice training in fulfilling professional obligations for accountability. Important factors in bringing about accountability are people and systems--people assess the need, consent to meet the need, and contract to be responsible for specific standards of performance. The desired performance is best accomplished through the use of a systems approach (PPBS). The mechanics of this system are (1) documenting programs, (2) setting goals, (3) developing objectives, (4) studying alternatives, (5) implementing programed plans, and (6) conducting evaluations. Managing by objectives is considered to be the core of the system. The report contains the documents used by the South-Western City Schools to conduct PPBS activities. (Author/WM)
