Introduction

Culture is an interval part of society and all of its institutions. Thus, it is not surprising to find that educators examining the development of public school education have been forced to address the issue of culture in the context of organizational development. If schools are to develop in a cohesive manner the cultures of that are utilized for development must be firmly rooted in the practices and traditions that will facilitate the best educational outcomes for all students involved. Clearly, this is a difficult objective to achieve. However, as Petersen and Deal (1998) note ?culture influences everything that goes on schools: how staff dress, what they talk about, their willingness to change, the practice of instruction and the emphasis given student and faculty learning?

Even though the organization has a solid reputation for academic achievement and individual personal development the reality of the organization is that significant problems are impeding the ability of the organization to move forward. While it is quite possible that many of the educators and school board administrators see these problems, the fragmentation and disarray that has been created in the organization in recent years continues to make it difficult for any one person to address all of these issues.

[...] Steadfast appearance to this pursuit creates a stable culture or both of the community and the school. Weaknesses of the Organization Although the organization has been able to effectively maintain solid academic performance in recent years, recent data on the student body population seems to suggest that more students are falling behind with respect to academic performance when compared to other schools in the same district. Unfortunately, the inability of educators and administrators to work together cooperatively served as the impetus to leave this issue unaddressed by either the school board or the community. [...]
