Board/Administrator Relations. A Manual for Workshop Leaders. Keys to School Boardsmanship. A Program of Continuing Education for School Board Members.
Jongeward, Ray E.
The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present a workshop for school board members on relations between school boards and administrators. Four elements basic to the establishment of effective relationships are reviewed: clarification of the roles and goals of the board and the administrators; effective communications between the board and the administrators; evaluation of administrators, particularly of the superintendent; and making positive use of divergent opinions. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshop; a selection of resource materials for the workshop leader; and a section containing four booklets for workshop participants, one on each of the four reviewed elements. The discussion of planning covers the scope and focus of the workshop, resource materials available, and the procedures, physical arrangements, and participant groupings suitable. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities to be used in each of the four topic areas, as well as introductory and evaluative activities. The resource materials provided include papers and position statements concerning board-administrator relationships, a paper on workshop strategy, and masters from which transparencies for projection at the workshop can be reproduced.
