The Site-Based Management Program at Ottawa River, Raymer, and Westfield Elementary Schools. Interim Evaluation Report.
House, Jess E.
This paper presents findings of an interim evaluation of a site-based management (SBM) project involving three elementary schools in Toledo City Schools (Ohio). A survey of all teachers in the three schools elicited 52 responses, a 98 percent response rate. Teachers reported that relative progress had been made in the areas of collaboration, involvement with the business community, release time, cooperative planning, inservice, and business input. They identified the following areas in need of improvement: principals' knowledge about rationales for classroom decisions, regular access to staff who had experienced similar problems, the process for establishing home-school relations, parental involvement with children with learning or behavioral problems, and coordination between programs for special children and other children. Data for the year preceding implementation (1991-92) and for the first year of site-based management (1992-93) were also reviewed. Major issues considered by the Site-Based Management Review Committee involved the school calendar, funding, collective bargaining, and site authority. Twelve recommendations are included. Appendices contain survey data, the SBM plan, a sample educational trust agreement, the board of education resolution on site-based decision making, and a sample request for proposal. (LMI)
