Factors Impacting School Closure and Configuration
Corrales, Antonio
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v20 n4 p85-105 Dec 2017
Newly implemented state policy dealing with school finance created several consequences in a school district to include school configuration and restructuring of educational programs. This case describes how a new school finance law changes the entire dynamic of a school district and its newly appointed superintendent. The superintendent considered changes across the district such as school closure, to meet the necessary budgetary reductions and continue serving the students by meeting their educational and social needs. The district leadership is forced to promote changes while dealing with local politics, the district internal culture, and the state educational system.
