    ABSTRACT: The following article examines the correlates of three separate con figurations of teacher participation in school system decision making. Defining decisional participation in terms of differences in the number of decisions in which teachers wish to participate and the number of deci sional instances in which they actually participate, the identified deci sional patterns are Deprivation, Equilibrium and Saturation. Four hy potheses relating personal and organizational characteristics to these decisional conditions are tested. Joseph A. Alutto is Associate Professor of Organizations and Human Resources at the State University of New York at Buffalo and James A. Belasco is Professor of Management at San Diego State College.

    ABSTRACT: The following article examines the relationship between the levels of satisfaction experienced by teachers and their state of decisional participation. Following March and Simon and Katz and Kahn, satisfaction was defined as a willingness to remain within the current school organization despite inducement to leave. Decisional participation was defined as the discrepancy between current and preferred levels of participation.

    ABSTRACT: If previously discovered influence-participation relationships are applicable to operating school systems it should mean that by allowing and fostering increased decisional participation by teaching personnel, administrative officials should discover an increase in their relative influence. A study explored two questions: Among teachers is there an identifiable relationship between extent of decisional participation and the perceived or preferred relative influence of administrative officials? Is any identifiable participation-influence relationship differentially distributed among the general teaching population? Relevant questionnaire data was solicited from teachers in two western New York school districts, one rural and one urban, with responses from 60 percent and 75 percent respectively. Variables included six demographic characteristics and commitment to school system. Findings resulting from correlational analyses: A negative relationship exists generally between the extent of decisional participation by teachers and the degree of perceived and preferred administrative influence. However, little relationship exists between those factors among unmarried male secondary teachers with 1-3 years service and low organizational commitment. Most consistent negative participation-influence relationships were found among married female elementary teachers with 4-10 years seniority and medium organizational commitment. (JS)
