New Perspectives in Administration: Report of an Elementary Principals' Conference.
OSSC Bulletin, v19 n1 Sep 1975
A conference on new perspectives in school administration was held for elementary school principals in the summer of 1975 by the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators. This paper summarizes material presented in five topic areas by eight speakers. Steve Goldschmidt's talk on school law touched on the administrator's and the school's liability in cases where negligence is alleged, and looked at the extent of the school's right to punish students, search lockers, and confiscate student property. Don Dunbar and Jim Beach discussed preparation for and prevention of teacher strikes from the administrator's perspective. The trend toward contract negotiation between administrators and school boards was Denny Westover's topic. Orville Ause covered evaluation of school personnel using an evaluation by objectives framework. Don Casida and Gene Perry reviewed the Planning Programming Budgeting System concept. Barbara Krohn described school public relations, noting the personnel involved, the audiences addressed, and some practical approaches to relations with the community. (PGD)
