Summary

This exercise explores by means of simulation the effect which the communications that take place in a school have on organization climate. The eight staff roles involved are assistant superintendent, principal, English department head, social studies department head, science department head, English teacher, social studies teacher, and science teacher. The objective for each one is to use the available modes of communication to achieve a personal goal which is indicated in the role description. Two sets of memos are supplied to each participant, one set sent by him to other staff members, and one set received by him and requesting a response. Any participant can communicate with any other participant by memorandum, discussions can be held with other individual participants specified in the role descriptions, and special meetings can be called under the rules set out. One of the central issues under consideration is a proposal for using paraprofessional aides for which a grant has been obtained, and during the game there will be two referendums on the issues involved in implementing the proposal. All the material needed for the simulation is included in the document. (SP 004 893, 894, and 895 are related documents.) (MBM)
