Report of the Massachusetts Business Task Force for School Management.
Massachusetts Advisory Council on Education, Boston.
This report is a detailed analysis of business practices within the Massachusetts public school system. It is the result of a three-month examination and evaluation of Massachusetts' schools by a volunteer task force of 33 corporation executives and managers. The evaluations and recommendations are organized into four major sections of the report. Section 1 summarizes the principal findings and recommendations of the task force; section 2 discusses the need for long-range planning, school district cooperation, and a statewide management information system; section 3 examines the issues of school funding, manpower, and facilities; and section 4 discusses different aspects of a school business management system, including fiscal management, facilities planning and acquisition, facilities operation and maintenance, transportation, materials procurement, food service, information systems, and interfacing systems. In addition, there is a bibliography of publications relevant to various school management topics, as well as a topical index of subjects discussed throughout the report. (JG)
