Administrative Bonus Pay.
Gallo, Vincent A.
The administrative bonus model described here assumes that educational delivery systems can be improved by improving people. That is, a people-improvement program is a better buy than the adoption and innovation syndrome of the fifties and sixties. This plan restores the principalship to its rightful place in the line of authority, power, and responsibility. Under the plan, the principal assumes responsibilities such as classroom visitation and conference and is paid a percentage bonus for these tasks. The restructured job description for the building administrator encompasses three basic areas: public relations, improvement of instruction, and management services. The implementation of the model would, over time, produce a school organization with a more open climate and encourage collaboration in decision-making. The model would produce concomitant increases in personal respect and commitment among and across disciplines and grade levels. The model is a comprehensive plan suitable for inservice and preservice modes, and could be used in its entirety or in bits and pieces. (Author/IRT)
