The Work of the Business and Distributive Education Department Chairman.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
Increasingly numerous and urgent requests for guidelines prompted the preparation of this publication listing the principal responsibilities of the chairman of a high school department of business and distributive education. An attempt is made to recommend criteria for small as well as large schools with realization that the scope of the activities will necessarily vary from school to school. In order to facilitate a chairman's self-evaluation, the various facets of his/her work have been prepared as a checklist. It is noted that the chairman may find it helpful to check those items that he already performs in the course of his duties and to let the unchecked items serve as indexes of new opportunities for service. Following an introduction, the checklist is divided into nine parts: Part 1--Preparing for the Opening of School, Part II--Developing the Curriculum, Part III, Improving and Evaluating Instruction, Part IV--Promoting Professional Development, Part V--Establishing and Maintaining Good Public Relations, Part IV--Reporting, Part VII--Department Meetings, Part VII--Recruitment of Teachers, and Part IX--Budget Development.
