Management by Objectives: A Guide for Starting an Independent School.
Heggins, Martha Jean Adams
Because education itself is a business, starting an independent school is much like starting a private business. This guide, designed to provide a sound basis for planning, implementing, and evaluating an independent school, focuses on various objectives, tasks, and other operational concerns that are essential in the initial planning process. Specifically, various strategies, as well as space for a time table and the names of the persons responsible for completing the tasks, are included within this document for the areas of governance, personnel, facilities, recruitment, finance, course of study, evaluation, parents, and accreditation. An assessment of the use of this guide in the development of the V.V. Reid Elementary School, the only independent African-American elementary school in South Carolina, showed that this instrument was a very successful tool. (KM)
