Abstract

The Parent Association at a charter elementary school in New York City is the focus of an organizational redesign assessment. Data defining the current organizational status and issues was collected via a survey of association leaders and an interview with the school principal. The results of the data analysis revealed concerns with defining an organizational mission, overall communication, role responsibility, and increasing parent involvement. Using Galbraith's Star model as an organizational construct, the issues were categorized as pertaining to strategy, structure, processes, rewards, or people. Specific intervention recommendations for reorganizing the association by addressing each of these areas are described.
