Abstract: The work of this study has produced a thorough review of the literature that involves the concepts of shared governance and shared power in the public schools. The implications of humanizing and democratizing the administration and the environment of the public schools were extensively reviewed. Antecedents and precedents for current practices were sought in industry and business, the social sciences, the management of junior colleges and colleges, and at other levels of public education. It became clear that there were many sources of logical precedents and antecedents to be applied to models for a public secondary school. These antecedents and precedents were applied to a description and exposition of an operational model of shared governance at Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut.
