East Oak Cliff Subdistrict Governance (Management) System. Toward a Self Correcting, Self Renewing Educational System.
This guide to school management is based on a systems approach in which well defined procedures and processes provide the basis for improvement and renewal of existing educational programs. The process begins with needs assessment. School climate, students' social behavior, discipline, and academic achievement are assessed, along with the level of parental involvement, teacher preparation needs, and cost effectiveness of existing programs. Based on the assessment of needs, objectives are developed to prioritize, plan, and assemble the components necessary to implement needed changes. Procedures for testing, evaluating, and modifying newly implemented changes provide built-in feedback and self-renewal. Sample data collection forms are provided. (JEH)
