Topics for Educational Policymakers.
Texas Association of School Boards, Austin.
The primary responsibility of school board members has always been the development of the policies that govern the school district. If these policies are to properly address the actual needs of the school district they must be based on an accurate and comprehensive knowledge of the issue confronting the district. This handbook is designed first to speak to the overall responsibilities of board members and then to speak to some of the specific issues that they will be dealing with. The six chapters are "Common Sense Concerning Employee Relations"; "School Superintendency Shopping Guide," by Nolan Estes; "Evaluation of Professional Educational Personnel," by Forrest Watson; "Substantive and Procedural Due Process for Teachers," by Russell R. Graham; "Educational Leadership--Steps for Survival," by Will D. Davis; and "Congratulations! You Made It!" by Laura T. Doing. (Author/IRT)
