Manual for the Self Evaluation of School Boards.
Wynn, Richard; Guerrieri, Donald J.
Developed for use with 90 school systems in Western Pennsylvania, this manual was field tested and modified in some of those systems. It allows school board members to test themselves on six important aspects of school board operation: (1) the conduct of meetings, (2) relationship with the administrative staff, (3) educational program improvement, (4) personnel function, (5) school funds and facilities, and (6) school-community relations. Each section includes a number of criteria against which the board's performance may be evaluated. It is suggested that after each board member and the superintendent complete each section of the evaluation form, working sessions be scheduled to discuss the criteria and to search for means of making improvements where necessary. Making these improvements may call for workshops, outside consultants, task force committees, and further evaluation procedures. A six-page bibliography dealing with school board operation is included. (Author/JM)
