Shaping School Policy: Guide to Choices, Politics, and Community Relations
This book is designed to help school administrators locate, analyze, and effectively use relevant information to create policies at the school or district level. Chapter 1 introduces the concepts of school policy and policy analysis, outlines the five-step Clear and Simple Analysis (CASA) model, and lists seven principles of effective policy analysis. Chapter 2 shows how to locate policy-relevant information in an efficient and effective way. Chapters 3-7 describe the stages of the CASA model: defining the policy problem; defining policy decision criteria; developing policy alternatives; considering policy alternatives; and presenting policy choices to the decision makers. Four tables and 10 figures are included. (LMI)
