School Restructuring : the superintendent's view by Douglas E Mitchell( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Findings from a study that examined the attitudes of California school district superintendents toward school restructuring are presented in this paper. Interviews were conducted with a total of 30 superintendents and senior staff members in 22 California school districts to explore their orientations toward school restructuring in general and toward eight specific restructuring approaches--school-based management, teacher empowerment, teacher professionalization, labor relations restructuring, pedagogical restructuring, governance reform, school choice, and integrated child service delivery. Although the superintendents held widely divergent perceptions about the nature and potential value of various approaches, three key tensions shaped their overall pattern of thinking about restructuring: (1) saliency vs. Explicitness of the issue; (2) performance improvement vs. Legitimacy of the schools; and (3) accountability vs. Ownership. Two contextual factors also influenced their thinking--amount of superintendency experience and the kind of community support. Implications are that school restructuring is not a clearly focused program of reform; caution should be used in judging reform efforts; and most efforts are relatively remote from the "technical core" of teaching and learning. A conclusion is that the politics of evaluation are important to the longterm success of restructuring. (23 references) (lmi)

School staff and parent evaluations of California's resource specialist programs : executive summary by Jeffrey B Hecht( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During 1989 more than 23,000 parents and educators representing 429 California schools returned surveys as a part of a triennial evaluation of special education. The surveys addressed three purposes: (1) overall assessment of the California Resource Specialist programs (designed to serve learning disabled students with a combination of regular classroom support and special "pullout" services); (2) identification of underlying themes and common perspectives within the evaluation data; and (3) determination of the extent to which response factors are able to predict student achievement and resource specialist program characteristics. Data from 5 of the 11 survey forms were analyzed in this report, including: educator opinions on overall school functioning and approval; parental opinions toward the school and the Resource Specialist program; educator views of the type, quantity, and quality of staff development activities; and perceptions of the effectiveness of the Resource Specialist Program in achieving program exit for participating students. Both parents and educators gave the program a strongly positive evaluation. Educators throughout California seem convinced that resource rooms support classroom success for special education students. According to parents, good schools are organizationally effective and stress shared instructional involvement and academic concerns for all children. Professional educators interpret the general school programs along three dimensions: principal leadership, effective classroom practices, and effective teaching strategies. Sources of program success, prediction of resource specialist outcomes, alternative goals, and policy implications are also discussed. There are 41 tables, 9 figures and two appendices containing surveys and results. (Mlh)

Educational marketing and the public schools : policies, practices and problems by E. Mark Hanson( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Public schools face many of the same marketing problems found in private-sector organizations. These include reputation building, resource mobilization, personnel employment, program development, client satisfaction, community good will, and public political support. This paper analyzes the marketing concept and illustrates its application to public school educational systems. The following questions are addressed: (1) What is marketing? (2) What market forces exist in education that create bridges or barriers between schools and the communities they serve? (3) Why apply marketing techniques to schools? (4) How do marketers contact the various segments of the community? (5) How do schools attempt to communicate with communities and vice versa? The marketing process is a mechanism intended to draw schools and their communities into productive and supportive working relationships. Within the field of education, however, natural market forces creating such relationships are virtually inoperative, causing inadequate citizen participation and inadequate funding. In order to stimulate a more productive school-community exchange process, the California Educational Research Cooperative (cerc) suggests developing ongoing marketing strategies.

Impact of California's special education pre-referral interventions and alternative assessments on ethno-linguistically diverse students : a technical report of the feasibility study, phase I, contract one by Ronald J Powell( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report documents efforts to develop instruments for data-gathering and to train field staff in the use of the instruments, as part of a feasibility study designed to validate a conceptual framework that describes the elements of California's special education prereferral and alternative assessment procedures for ethno-linguistically diverse students at the elementary level. The conceptual framework identifies the prereferral intervention process as a multi-channel student flow system through which a student at risk who is experiencing problems with learning academic skills is reviewed and placed in one of the following six categories of program and/or placement modifications: (1) return the student to the originating mainstream teacher; (2) reassign the student to another classroom; (3) adjust environmental factors; (4) provide remedial instruction services; (5) provide ongoing support services; and (6) refer student directly for special education assessment and placement. It is hypothesized that the frequency with which students at risk are channeled into each of the six outcome categories is predicted by eight factors representing various demographic and individual student characteristics such as problem etiology and diagnosis, family and demographic characteristics, school climate and culture, and service availability. Ten original instruments were developed to gather data to test these hypotheses, and other existing instruments were incorporated into the instrumentation package. Copies of the forms are provided.
