A Study of Structure and Organization of the State Board of Education, State Superintendent of Instruction and Department of Public Instruction

January 27th, 2009 – Program Evaluation Committee

The Appropriations Act of 2008 directed the Program Evaluation Division to study the State Board of Education and Department of Public Instruction. Evergreen Solutions performed the study under contract to the Legislative Services Commission. Major findings are: 1) the diffused leadership of public education has created a dysfunctional and confusing system of governance; 2) the State Board lacks appropriate information to facilitate decision making, oversight, accountability and policy making for public education. A dashboard is needed to monitor success; and 3) the Department of Public Instruction needs additional restructuring and improved operational efficiency. Recommendations address each of the major findings.
