dc.description.abstract This study examined the relationship between teachers’ involvement in shared decision making and their job satisfaction. It also examined the impact that the types of decisions in which teachers are involved (technical or managerial) can have on teachers’ job satisfaction levels. This research study also examined the relationship between teachers’ level of involvement in shared decision making and the organizational climate of a school. A total of 70 schools located in the central and northern regions of Alabama participated in this research study. The schools consisted of various grade configurations from kindergarten through twelfth grade. A total of 1,417 teachers were given surveys to complete. Out of that total, the range of teacher participants that completed the three survey instruments for this research study was between 227 and 248. The three survey instruments were The Alutto-Belasco Decisional Participation Scale modified by Conway, Evan and Johnson’s Teacher Job Satisfaction Survey, and Hoy’s Organizational Climate Index. The findings of this study did not support the hypotheses concerning involvement in shared decision making positively impacting the job satisfaction levels of teachers. A negative correlation was found. Teachers’ involvement in shared decision making was also found to have no significant impact on the organizational climate of a school. Un-hypothesized findings did show, however, that organizational climate was significantly correlated to job satisfaction.
