National education goals : America's school boards respond : a report of the Joint Study Group on the National Education Goals by Joint Study Group on the National Education Goals (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the advent of the National Education Goals formulated by President Bush and the nation's governors, there is a new, nationwide environment for America's schools. Goals and objectives set at this new level imply a desire for involvement in national monitoring of local efforts to assess student, school, and district performance. Concerned about school board response to the National Education Goals, the National School Boards Association and the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement jointly sponsored a study group to examine why National Education Goals are being promulgated now, why they are important for local school boards, and what school boards can do to support the goals. The study group developed several general principles to apply to each goal. Essentially, the study group urges school boards to: (1) consider the National Education Goals a framework for discussing local educational improvement efforts; (2) recognize that the goals redefine board responsibilities to include advocacy for children and learning; (3) demonstrate the school board's leadership in deciding which community group has primary responsibility for achieving each goal; and (4) prepare to cooperate with community members to change the framework for strategic thinking about education. The study group also offers a framework for considering each goal at the local level and outlines ideal board responses to each of 21 objectives established for the goals. (Mlh)
Roles and relationships : school boards and superintendents by Joint AASA-NSBA Committee( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1994 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This position statement, coauthored by a joint committee composed of members of the American Association of School Administrators (aasa) and the National School Boards Association (asba), outlines a new cooperative relationship for superintendents and school boards. In light of the challenges that today's superintendents and school boards face, it is necessary that both parties examine their roles and responsibilities. This document describes the work of the joint committee, professional standards for the superintendency, and the governance role of school boards. It also highlights some societal changes that have affected public school governance and administration. Three major factors of the board-superintendent relationship include the nature of policy development and administration; the increasing influence of external factors on local district governance; and the discretionary authority granted to boards by their chief administrators. The specific responsibilities for boards and superintendents are outlined. Effective communication is identified as a key to a successful board-administrator relationship. (Lmi)
Holding effective board meetings by Arlington, Va American Association of School Administrators( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advice and tested methods for management of meetings from superintendents and board members are combined in this reference book on conducting effective school board meetings. Intended for a wide readership, it contains three chapters and an exhibit section comprising over one-third of the document. Following a brief introduction, chapter 1, "Planning: Setting the Scene for Success," presents first-hand experiences of meeting planners who suggest ways to improve meeting planning procedures. From long-range needs--such as building the policy foundation upon which effective meetings rest--to setting the next meeting agenda, detailed recommendations are provided. Short-term planning means that the agenda must be prepared, the stage set, and the participants prepared. "Performing: The School Board in Action," chapter 2, covers essential tasks of meeting participants: board president, members, and superintendent and administrators. Chapter 3, "Following Up: The Superintendent's Communications," examines significant tasks and establishes accountability for their completion. The exhibits include parliamentary rules, sample agendas, room seating arrangements, and meeting evaluation checklist. Sample policies include board-superintendent relationship, new member orientation, public hearings, agenda format, voting methods, and public participation. (Cjh)
