In recent years, the educational system in the United States has been evolving from a largely centralized decision-making structure to a more decentralized one. This shift to school-based management requires fundamental changes to the organizational structure of the district as well as the roles within the organization.

It involves shifting decision making from the central office administrators to that of local schools (Henkin, Cistone and Dee, 1999).
