School Management in Feira de Santana: analysis of official texts

ASBTRACT: In the 21st century, the need for regulation of the manager’s role is incorporated into the discourse of school management. The documental research carried out included the analysis of official documents from Feira de Santana - Bahia, Brazil between 1990 and 2015, applying the Policy Cycle as the methodological approach. The results showed that the predominant management model emerges from the interrelationships between school, local authorities, national context and production of official documents. The election of principals, in order to provide the management function, revealed evidence for the understanding of the democratic management model in Feira de Santana, influenced by the participation of both teaching movements and the local population.
