Site-based management shifts decision making authority form the central office to the schools. Its efforts to improve school performance through general purpose of the public policy – regulation, mandate, enforcement, and legal action. According to the theory of site-based management, all decisions of educational consequence are to be made at the school.

  • Under the concept of the principal as a site manager, the principal controls school resources and is held accountable for the success of the school.
  • Under the philosophy of lay control, parents control site policy because they are the consumers and care most deeply about policies at schools their children attend.
  • Under school-site policymaking by teachers, teachers form a school-site senate and allocate funds and personnel as well as decide instructional issues. 
  • Under a philosophy of fairness, no one party should control the school entirely. Parents, teachers, and the administration should have parity on a school-site council that reaches agreement through consensus. All factors deserve a place at the table, and the students should prevail.
