A Guide to School Board Policy: The American Sponsored Overseas School.
Orr, Paul Glen
This book should be of specific interest to American sponsored overseas schools (ASOS) superintendents and board members, but it is also useful for others who are interested in or responsible for school policy. This group includes parents, students, school committees and groups, teachers, and other school personnel. The book does not attempt to decide what a school's policies should be. It does provide a comprehensive guide that should be helpful to a school as it develops and revises policies for its own direction. The guide includes the major issues involved in policy matters, the categories of school policy that should be considered, and a few examples that are most pertinent to the ASOS. The guide also treats rules for the implementation of policy and examples of information documents that should be available. The book contains sections on school board operation, general school administration, fiscal management, business management, personnel, negotiations, instructional programs, students, interorganizational relations, boarding facilities, and fund raising.
