Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents, Boston.; Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Quincy. Office of Community Education.
The School-Based Improvement Project (SBIP) is a joint venture of the Office of Community Education of the Massachusetts Department of Education and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (MASS). SBIP is a multiyear professional-development initiative designed to help public school superintendents become effective leaders in promoting educational restructuring and school-based management in their schools. The project is composed of a colloquium series, support groups, peer coaching programs, and onsite leadership laboratories. This document highlights the presentations and workshops delivered during the 1990-91 colloquium series, in which participants engaged in small- and large-group sessions and roundtable discussions. The major themes of the colloquia included: (1) an introduction to restructuring and to the SBIP; (2) challenges to leadership in a changing world; (3) new models of leadership; (4) developing leadership in others; and (5) applications of superintendents' leadership. Appendices contain a list of the SBIP advisory committee members and their biographies. (LMI)
