Transcript: The Superintendent reviews decisions that must be made by a party of supporters. Here decisions include more than just the superintendent. But they do not arrive if the decision can be easily made by Principals. Decisions making here is simple if the complaint or need is within the scope of the school center. Many times decision making does not leave the physical site if the Principal addresses any concerns with the teachers or parents. Albuquerque Public Schools. 2014. Decision-Making Process Retrieved from; aps.edu Child Find. April, 2011. EDL/535 University of Phoenix. 2014 A city district is usually color coded and covers a great amount of terrain. The districts are divided among the city and includes communities that can sustain each other in all areas where they can gather a sufficient amount of pupils that can serve a wide area without over crowding. Decisions are reviewed in districts before they move on to the legislature if necessary. Irene Collins November 22, 2014 University of Phoenix References The decision making process may be as simple as a student needing to change classrooms for a particular reason. Or the parent thinks that the student has certain special needs. In which case, a meeting is held and a decision is made. On the other hand IEP's can be established if need be. At this point, the decision needs to go no further than the school site. Teachers & Parents Superintendents Decision-Making Flow Chart The City Districts Principals The New Mexico State Legislature All decisions are based upon cause and effect. Questions that arise are for example; Is a certain technique effecting anyone or anything? Is something causing anything to happen that is undesirable? If the answer is yes to any of these questions or if there has been a complaint then more likely it will go through the following steps first. Before it reaches the state legislature any one particular item has already been through a list of people. Teachers or Parents The Principal The District The Superintendent The State Legislature

Conclusion State Decisions at the district level include; hiring of staff, rules and safety regulations, curriculum choices, and school budgets. Decisions in education are made by local schools, districts, and the state. All of these levels work together to make the best choices for all parties involved. Understanding these levels can help educators (or stakeholders) become involved with decision-making. Administrators often make decisions about school budget, staff, severe discipline issues, and curriculum choices. Administrators For example, in the state of Colorado, students in grades 3-10 are required to take the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP). Schools are required to give this test between February and March (Colorado Department of Education, 2014). teacher leaders teachers specials teachers Example of a Local Decision Decision-making is an important component in education. Some decisions are easy to make, others can be more challenging. Decisions can be made at the school, district, and state levels. Each decision can be critical to the overall success of a school and should not be taken lightly (About.com, 2014). If there is a disruptive student a teacher can chose how to discipline the student (i.e. loss of recess or privilege). If a student continues the behavior a principal or administrator can chose the appropriate actions (i.e. loss or privileges, detention). Includes: Teachers Includes: state governors legislators state boards of education chief state school officers state education agencies local boards of education References Includes: school board members administration superintendent If a school is performing poorly within the district and there have been no improvements, the district can step in and make adjustments to improve school performance. Decision-Making Flow Chart Cassandra Doescher EDL/535 February 17, 2014 Melissa Connors Introduction Example of a District Decision Example of State Decisions All of these teachers make decisions within the classroom on a daily basis. Some of these teachers may help make curriculum or other decisions regarding the school. District
Transcript: One example of a decision that was made at the state level is when the governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal tried to pass a bill that authorized the use public monies to fund student vouchers. This would allow parents to pull their student from a failing school and use the voucher to pay for private school. The state legislature agreed and it was signed into law. The law was later challenged and the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled the law unconstitutional )Strauss, 2012,p,1). Had this law not been overturned, it would have greatly affected the states public schools. Public schools would have lost the funding for each student who left with a voucher which would have further depleated their resources making it even harder for them to improve, Example 1 The decisions that mold and shape the educational system in St. Tammany Parish go through many channels before they actually affect the schools. These channels act as filters, which helps ensure that all decisions are well thought through, fair, equitable, and in the best interest of the students. For this system of checks and balances to be effective it is imperative that all members cooperate and collaborate, always having the best interests of the students in mind. Strauss, V. (2012).

These decisions are made at three levels: State, District, and School. Every decision is critical to the success of the school and must be carefully weighed and thought through before a decisions are made and policy is enacted. Throughout this presentation we will look at each of the 3 levels and will identify who has decision-making power and responsibilities at each level The principal is responsible for most areas of day-to-day school operation. He/she guides behavior management, budgeting, staff supervision, and curriculum. Principals publicly represent the school and interact with district, state and federal authorities. Vice principals assist the principal in various areas. School Principal Assistant Principal Conclusion Louisiana Department of Education. (2014). About us.

This was proposed and voted on by the state, then passed down to the district who was put in charge of implementing it in the schools.

Everything has its purpose. As a teacher or a teacher leader at a school, we must know there is a chain of command and decisions made at our level are based on directives (or decisions) made at other levels of the educational ladder. It is our job as teachers and teacher leaders to make decisions that are beneficial for our school and our students. Conclusion Before we get mad at decisions made by our administration we have to think about where their directives are coming from. What has the legislation passed down to them. A good leader analyzes their school and decides when it is good to implement certain things based on solid decisions. The District Includes School Board Members, Superintendent and Administration
Transcript: School Power State Power First are the decisions of the Commissioner of Education, who decides controversies and disputes arising under the school laws through an administrative hearing process. Second are those issued by the School Ethics Commission, which issues decisions with respect to alleged violations of the School Ethics Act. The decision of the State Board of Examiners is the third source; It issues decisions suspending or revoking certificates of teachers (NJDOE, para 4). Federal Law State Statue State Regulation Decisional Law, State Policy, and Local Policy State Regulation New Jersey DOE District Power Pertains to the School Districts and Schools. Districts must adhere by court and state agencies and administrative decisions. There are three primary sources that must be followed and hold the power at the state level. Those primary sources are Commissioner of Education, School Ethics Commission, and State Board of Examiners. Decision-Making Flow Chart The Principals and administration are the policy makers within the school walls. The principals set the rules and regulations that best fit his or her schools. A decision made by the state is the fall cut-off date. The problem is that parents would like to move the date out longer. The state decided that the fall cut out date was appropriate and would stand. It affects the district and school on a more local level by the approved calenders. On a different note it would bring more money to the district if the date was pushed out because the enrollment numbers would increase. The school would benefit by hiring more teachers. Proposals that affect education are looked at by the NJ legislature. When bills are signed by Governor that become part of the New Jersey Statues Annotated Title 18A, education law. State Statue Federal Law Regulates the procedures for state education statues to be implemented. So the DOE works with the Commissioner and State Board of Education to make decisions based on the law. Roxanne De La Rosa EDL 535 May 12, 2014 Rahim Jones Example, Decisional Law, State & Local Policy Local Board of Education members are who make the school's district policy makers. The local Board of Education members make the policies and procedures that more directly affect the students and teachers. Parents can also get involved by attending board meetings. At the federal level law makers, the U.S. Congress, make laws that affect many aspects of education. The federal agencies create rules and regulations that implement federal laws and that are all affected by New Jersey school districts. In the state of NJ only Congress can change state statue.
