An Assessment of the Roles, Functions, and Needs for Personnel Development Coordination Within Area Schools and Area Education Agencies. Final Report.
Gelina, Robert J.; Keller, Denise Helene
The functions of and needs for personnel development coordinators in the Area Education Agencies and Area Schools within the State of Iowa were assessed by this study. The following objectives were delineated for this project: (1) to determine the roles and functions of a Personnel Development Coordination system; (2) to determine the competencies necessary to fulfill the Personnel Development Coordination role; (3) to ascertain the need for Personnel Development Coordination within the Area Schools and Area Education Agencies; and (4) to identify potential delivery systems for Personnel Development Coordination within the State of Iowa. A coordinated system for personnel development in the Area Schools and Area Education Agencies was devised. This model was presented to a random selection of eight schools and four agencies. After thorough discussion, participants (consisting of administrators, instructors and supportive staff) assessed their respective institution's personnel development through the use of an evaluative instrument. Discussions again ensued detailing potential delivery systems within Area Schools and Area Education Agencies. It was concluded that personnel development is needed, to some extent, by both institutions, more so by the Area Schools. Optimal personnel development programs would involve individual coordinators for each school and agency, but working cooperatively throughout the state. (MV)
