Involving Staff Personnel in Preparing for Negotiations.
Foley, Leland L.
The speaker begins by acknowledging that the first reality is that the bargaining process requires sophistication and skill regardless of the size of the school district. Preparation for negotiations in the speaker's district is centered around a five-member negotiation team that consists of one negotiator and four principals. The speaker outlines the responsibilities of the board of education, the superintendent, the assistant superintendents, and the principals in the negotiation process. He concludes that a clear chain of command must be established and communication among the administrators must be continuous if all involved are to understand the process. (Author/IRT)
