Summary

The Philadelphia Commission on Decentralization and Community Participation offers plans for reforms on the school and district level. On the school level, three options are suggested: (1) informal community participation in decision-making; (2) advisory participation in the form of an elected or appointed committee from the community; or, (3) shared authority and responsibility with a local school board. These options are each discussed in relation to policy framework, objectives and evaluation, curriculum, personnel, finance, health and pupil services, purchasing, plant maintenance and operations, and other services. On the district level, suggestions are made for parceling out administrative responsibilities to local school boards and community groups. These responsibilities relate to purchasing, contracts, determination of school organization, capacity, and busing, administrative district reorganization, citywide schools, grants for instructional improvement, maintenance, and food service. In addition, recommendations for revising systemwide policies by referendums (school-community opinion and advice) and other means are made. These relate to administrative roles and responsibilities, curriculum policy, financial policy, and personnel policy. Individual statements by the Commission's members, and a bibliography are appended. (RJ)
