How To Organize for School-Based Management.
Suggestions for the organization of school-based management (SBM) implementation are presented in this guidebook for administrators. Five chapters cover the following topics: pros and cons of SBM; barriers to implementation; board of education relations; leadership roles; implementation mechanisms, such as goal-setting, budgeting, and personnel allocation; curriculum development; and information sharing. A caution is that as SBM becomes more integrated, union power is diluted. Empowerment of individuals, as differentiated from union power, may later threaten union status quo. Figures illustrate the material, and lists of references and resources offer 38 citations. (LMI)
