Cowart, Scott K.
School Administrator, v67 n2 p16-19 Feb 2010

The author was looking for a way to push improvement in his 4,000-student school system when he discovered the balanced scorecard, a strategic tool for performance management. The author details how the balanced scorecard helped him to show the school board and public whether district operations aligned with the larger-scale goals.
