Integration or Fragmentation: The Impact of Site-Based Decision-Making.
Avila, Linda, Ed.
Early efforts at site-based decision making in Texas created many diverse questions about how to proceed. In some school districts, the change to a new decision-making balance centered around the district office. In others, strong campus control was established and effective self-governance plans were created. This monograph presents the experiences of different schools involved in site-based decision making. There are 10 chapters by separate authors: (1) "School District Policies Supporting School Renewal," Carl D. Glickman; (2) "Site-Based-Decision-Making: Hot Air or Serious Business," Grant Simpson; (3) "Site-Based Decisions and At-Risk Programs: We Did It Our Way!," Karen Buser; (4) "Grassroots Perceptions of District Office Roles and School Reform," Phillip Payne and Edward Pajak; (5) "Site-Based Decision-Making: Deregulation, School Style," Judy Reinhartz; (6) "Site-Based Decision-Making: The Role of the Central Office Administrators in Decentralization," Gloria McCown; (7) "Superintendents and Site-Based Decision-Making: The Test of Practical Leadership," Mike Boone; (8) "Site-Based Decision-Making and Strategic Planning: Friends or Foes?," James R. LeBuffe; (9) "Curriculum Integrity in an Environment of Decentralized Decision-Making," Claude H. Cunningham; and (10) "A Culture for the Development of Accomplished Rule-Breakers," W. L. Sanders. (Contains 73 references.) (JPT)
