Independent School Management, Wilmington, DE.
This handbook provides suggestions for building a private-independent school trustee-board relationship. An effective relationship requires individual education about today's trusteeship and appropriate board organization. Chapter 1 describes the role of the trusteeship, and chapter 2 offers guidelines for developing a school philosophy and budget. The stages of board development are outlined in the third chapter. The board organizational process, based on structure corresponding with function, is described in chapter 4. Chapter 5 presents a long-range planning model that outlines a sequence of actions. Three worksheets and three figures are included. The appendix contains 11 articles from the Independent School Management's advisory letter, "Ideas & Perspectives." (LMI)
