School/Community-Based Management. Final Report.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu.
School/Community-Based Management (SCBM) improves the quality of education by providing schools with administrative flexibility and by empowering each school's community to make and implement decisions that will directly affect its members and students. To help individual school communities that are considering adopting SCBM understand how shared decisionmaking works, this document provides information on how traditional roles will change, what kind of organizational structure will best suit their particular needs, what parameters may define or limit their decisions, how regulations can be waived or set aside, and how each school will be held accountable under SCBM. To qualify for the SCBM program, which is open to all Hawaiian public schools, the school's community must first submit a letter of intent to the Department of Education; then the school must prepare and submit its proposal to implement. A proposal will be accepted only if a school's community can demonstrate full understanding of the SCBM concept, can assume responsibility for its own decisions, and can specify both success measures and intervention strategies for use if warranted. The appendix contains questions and answers, a covenant form, a qualification form, a waiver request form, a glossary, and task force member's names. (KM)
