Methods of scheduling salaries for principals by Gertrude N Stieber( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1991 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes and reports the various methods public school systems use to schedule salaries for supervising principals. No attempt is made to prescribe or recommend procedures for scheduling salaries; rather, present practices are identified, described, and analyzed. Some unusual practices are included. For example, the procedure of relating the salary schedule for principals to the salary of the school superintendent rather than to the salaries of teachers. In general, there are four major components of the salary schedules analyzed in this study: (1) base for the schedule, (2) structure of the schedule, (3) incremental pattern of the schedule, and (4) advancement on the schedule. The extensive statistical data covers 272 public school systems with enrollments of 300 or more. (Author/IRT)

What do we know about declining (or rising) student achievement? by Richard Rothstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Available test score evidence does not support the common claim that student achievement has declined. On the other hand, the existing evidence cannot be used to prove that student achievement has risen. This paper offers reasons why student achievement in the past cannot be compared accurately with student achievement today: (1) tests, curricula, and student populations change; (2) background data are unreliable; and (3) test administration is inconsistent. The paper also discusses three assessments that have commonly been used by those trying to compare student achievement over time--the College Board's Scholastic Aptitude Test (sat), the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (itbs), and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep). The paper asserts that it is impossible to know exactly how much better or worse American students are doing today compared to students in the past. School improvement, while important and necessary, should not be based on the false belief in "a golden age of education from which we have fallen." (Contains 12 references.) (Lmi)
Evaluating superintendents and school boards by Va.) Educational Research Service (Arlington( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procedures and instruments used for evaluating either or both school superintendents and boards of education were solicited from Educational Research Service's subscribing school systems, state associations of school boards, and state associations of school administrators. Sixty-eight school systems sent their formal procedures for evaluating the superintendent; 14 of these reported procedures for the evaluation of the board of education. Six state administrator associations and 14 state school board associations contributed information on recommended evaluation procedures for superintendents and school boards. This report contains a review of the procedures and forms used and includes specific examples of evaluation procedures. Characteristics common to the procedures of the reporting agencies are listed and certain details from some evaluative procedures are noted. Selected evaluation forms and a bibliography are included.

Comprehensive models for school improvement : finding the right match and making it work by Nancy Protheroe( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprehensive school improvement is based on reorganizing and revitalizing the entire school rather than focusing on specific student populations or programs. An overview of 17 schoolwide reform programs is provided in this book. The purpose of the text is to give education leaders basic information about some of the best-known externally developed programs available. Each overview is based largely on promotional materials provided by the sponsoring organizations. The guide opens with a synopsis of the trend toward comprehensive school improvement--including notes on federal funding--and details how to choose the right comprehensive program for a school. The profiles of the 17 comprehensive school-improvement programs are offered next, with much of the information being provided in a question-and-answer format. Whether or not a school or district should design its own comprehensive school-improvement program is addressed and some essential elements of homegrown programs are discussed. The section includes information about the components researchers recommend, including those in any comprehensive model. The text concludes with strategies for successfully implementing comprehensive school-improvement programs. A list of additional resources to aid further research is given. (Rjm)
