Giving Teachers the Time To Teach: The Classroom Management System in the Public Schools of South Carolina.
West, Gary
The major components of South Carolina's Classroom Management System (CMS) are described, and CMS components are related to the reduction of teacher time and paperwork in the instructional planning and record-keeping processes. Specific detail is given for the instructional management component of CMS because of its potential for managing curriculum and instruction. The South Carolina Education Improvement Act requires school personnel to document that standards are met and that remediation is successfully provided in cases where standards are not met. The discussion is not limited to the use of CMS in remedial or compensatory settings, however. Hardware, software, and training programs are discussed with respect to their impact on the classroom teacher and the services provided by that teacher. Essentially, CMS is a pilot program used to develop teacher-level management tools that will computerize and automate the assessment and diagnosis of student needs, the selection and application of instructional prescriptions, and the recording and reporting of the results of those processes and procedures.
