About the Author:

Doug Johnson is director of Media and Technology at I.S.D. 77 Mankato Public Schools in Minnesota.

From Booklist:

This is a workbook that is full of outlines, checklists, and samples, with places for your own notes, all told with great energy in a breezy and iconoclastic style. Johnson understands the structure and talks the talk of the educational system and its particular building-level and district-level needs; he gives very good advice, particularly about budgeting and how to evaluate programs; and he is reassuring without letting readers get away with much. He covers planning, public relations, mission and beliefs, curriculum, budget, and policies, among other key points. Many of the chapters were originally published in his "Head for the Edge" column in Technology Connection and other places, so there is some repetition. He tells great stories, all of which have a point. Indispensable, indeed, for media specialists. GraceAnne A. DeCandido
