Perceptions of Participatory Decision Making by "Key Players" in a Collaborative School/University Staff Development Program.
Meis, Ruby L.; Hall, Burnis
The Staff Development for School Improvement Program (SDSI) at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) and Wayne State University (WSU) is an exceptional undertaking, designed to promote school improvement through the cooperative actions of EMU and WSU, and public schools. In the program, a university faculty member (facilitator) is assigned to work with the staff of a designated school to design and implement a staff development project. The use of a participatory decision making model (the six-step process), and the adoption of a project which results in improvement of the instructional environment, are the two primary outcomes expected from the SDSI. A survey was developed focusing on the perceptions of the key players, teachers, building leadership teams, principals and university facilitators relative to the expected outcomes of the six-step process-participatory decision making and adoption of a project which results in improvement of the instructional environment. Basic general recommendations offered cover two areas: (1) the perception of the teachers of the six-step process and how it related to expected educational outcomes; and (2) the preparation of the facilitator in assisting the teachers.
