Assessment of an Organization Development Intervention in a Parochial High School.
Gelula, Mark H.
This paper reports some findings observed in the course of an on-going study of some effects of an Organization Development (OD) intervention in a secondary level parochial school. Two types of data are reported. First, data commonly found in literature concerning OD in schools, those in the social psychological dimension. These included some general climate descriptors, and a satisfaction criterion, as well as data regarding levels of interpersonal communication, supportive behaviors (interpersonal and intergroup), intragroup emphasis, decision-making skill perceptions, and perceptions of skill ability in problem-solving at both faculty-wide and departmental levels. Secondly, the study describes data reflecting levels of teacher stability (or turnover), teacher absenteeism, pupil stability, pupil absenteeism, pupil application rates (i.e. application for admission), and relevant anecdotes regarding a self-appraisal performed by the school's staff, and anecdotes describing the way in which the staff perceived itself during a "lay-teacher" strike.
