This Public school organizational chart depicts the structure of a public school. Historically, public schools have followed a functional system, with HR, communications, finance, operations, transportation, etc. However, I am seeing an increase in districts incorporating divisionally-focused groups into their functional organization. This public school organizational chart also illustrates the foundation of the school system. The structure defines the most important school characteristics, including school entrance age, compulsory education, school level duration, system subordination, and internal correlations. All of these characteristics should be present in an ideal school organization. Simplicity: This means that each person working in a school should have a clear understanding of their roles, duties, responsibilities, and powers.
