Accountability: An Action Model for the Public Schools.
DeMont, Bill[ie]; DeMont, Roger
The model proposed in this book specifies that there are four types of interrelated practices that determine the extent to which accountability is realized. These are (1) the identification of primary accountability agents and their respective program responsibilities, (2) the execution of internal program reviews by those program officers, (3) the completion of external program reviews by independent auditors including professionals and lay persons, and (4) the use of reviews to develop programs by introducing refinements and innovations. Each component of the model is described in detail and implications are drawn for both professional roles and organizational practices. The last chapter deals with procedures for implementing accountability systems in the local school setting. A bibliography is included and the appendix contains accountability checklists designed to provide information about the four components of the model. (Author/MLF)
