Developing Performance Excellence in Catholic Educational Policymaking. A Handbook of Training Programs.
Designed for boards of education of Catholic schools, this handbook presents a comprehensive and ongoing program of board development made up of preservice and inservice education activities. Six components of such a program are presented: (1) new membership orientation, (2) inservice education integrated with regularly scheduled meetings, (3) independent study activities, (4) an annual workshop and retreat, (5) inservice to fill the specific needs of standing committees, and (6) diocesan-wide congresses. The guide presents general guidelines for inservice and then, for each type of inservice program, presents a model program including specific reading and taped materials, discussion points, and topics for oral presentations. For workshops and conferences, a complete model hour-by-hour schedule is offered. Material from the publication "Ascent to Excellence in Catholic Education" is used extensively in the preservice and inservice activities. An appendix contains discussion questions for annual retreat workshops and committee meetings. (Author/JM)
