Evaluation of the Administrative Flexibility Legislation Affecting the Department of Education and the University of Hawaii, Acts 320 and 321, SLH 1986: Final Report, No. 89-18. A Report to the Governor and the Legislature of the State of Hawaii.
Hawaii State Office of the Legislative Auditor, Honolulu.
Acts 320 and 321, SLH 1986, temporarily granted broadened administrative flexibility to Hawaii's two educational agencies--the Department of Education (DOE) and the University of Hawaii (UH). Under these two acts, the Office of the Legislative Auditor was directed to assess and evaluate the impact of the flexibility legislation--especially its impact on the quality of education rendered by the two agencies--and report back to the legislature, particularly with regard to whether the legislation should be kept in effect or allowed to expire on June 30, 1989, as provided for in the two acts. This report is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 consists of an introduction and some background information, including a summary of the findings and recommendations contained in the two preceding interim reports. Chapter 2 discusses the executive and educational agency perspectives on administrative flexibility. Chapter 3 is the central chapter and provides an update on the actual implementation of Acts 320 and 321, SLH 1986, within each of the two educational agencies. This is followed by a review in chapter 4 of educational assessment activities in the UH and DOE. Recommendations to the 1989 Legislature are made regarding extension or nonextension of the legislation beyond the June 30, 1989, expiration date. (18 references) (SI)
