Program Evaluation: School Board Roles. Leader's Manual. Keys to School Boardsmanship. A Program of Continuing Education for School Board Members.
Tomblin, Betty; Wolfe, Leslie G.
The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present a workshop for school board members on program evaluation. The board's role in program evaluation is primarily to set the goals and philosophy of the district, to establish policy for program evaluation, to examine the congruence between the district's philosophy and its programs, and to make program decisions on the basis of this information. The workshop's four basic segments justify school board involvement in the curriculum, cover the school board's role in program evaluation, discuss the use of evaluation information in decision-making, and apply the workshop lessons to individual district situations. The workshop manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshop; a selection of resource materials; and a booklet for workshop participants. The discussion of planning covers the focus and scope of the workshop, its organization, and familiarization with relevant materials. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities and instructions for conducting those activities. The resource materials provided include a paper on evaluating instructional programs, and masters from which transparencies can be reproduced for projection at the workshop. (Author/PGD)
