Trow, Jo Anne J.
In order to help beginning professionals to be better administrators, this manual (one in a series of documents for and about women in education) provides information on such administrative tasks as running an office, hiring and training a staff, managing a budget, and doing public relations work. Office organization and management are discussed in the areas of delegating authority; use of the secretarial staff; office procedures (correspondence, filing, staff meetings, staff scheduling, and crises and emergencies); and time management. Procedures for hiring staff are described, i.e., writing the position description, announcing the job, processing applications, composing a selection committee, and interviewing; training staff, (in-service training, staff development, evaluations, and rewards) is explored. Public relations, budget development, and administration are also briefly discussed. The appendices include an index for an office procedures manual, two sample filing systems, and an administrative evaluation form. A reference list is also included. (WAS)
