The Collaborative and Integrated Whole School Development Cycle.
Adams, Will; And Others
This paper describes the arrangement between an English local education agency and a co-educational comprehensive school, in which the school contracts for services with a direct-service agency of the local education authority (LEA). Roade School is one of the larger schools in Northamptonshire, a rural county in central England. The Northamptonshire Education Authority takes the maximum authority provided by legislation to delegate both authority and responsibility to the governing bodies of its schools, including full financial control. Although all schools in the county are self-managing, they are supported by the County Education Authority. They are free to contract for services with the Northamptonshire Inspection and Advisory Service (NIAS), an organization that offers a wide range of professional-development, inspection, and support services to the schools. The NIAS is a trading organization that markets its services to schools. Schools can decide what proportion of their budgets will be spent on certain functions. Powers and duties of the governing body are also described. (LMI)
