Intervention (Public) The project of intervention will occur based on a partnership between the Municipal Secretariat of Education of Rio de Janeiro - SMERJ and the Court of Accountability of the City of Rio de Janeiro - TCMRJ. A collaboration term is needed because the project will be executed in the schools controlled by the Secretary of Education using human resources from the Court and from the Secretary. The document defines the responsibilities of each part and the implementation operational procedures of the experiment. Marked professionals from the Court and Secretariat will form the inter-institutional team that will deliver the treatment and placebo measures in the schools. A formal designation of the inter-institutional team, as defined in the collaboration term, will be done with a joint act signed by the President of the Court and the Secretary of Education. It will be created, defined, and implemented operational practices based on the best management practices compiled by Bloom et al. (2015) from decades of research in management and education. The study cited absorbs management measures from previous research across other sectors such as manufacturing, retail, health care sectors, but with changes in order to adjust the framework to the school context. Therefore, sixteen management basic measures are applicable to different sectors as showed in Bloom et al. (2014), seven are specially designed to the management of schools (Bloom et al., 2015). The research conducted by Bloom et al. (2015) shows the best management practices in a high-level view. Therefore, it is important to develop, based on the cited high-level definition of the best management practices, low-level operational practices to be implemented in schools aiming at a better school management situation. Considering this fact, operational practices - considering the reality of the Brazilian educational system and based on the high-level best management measures presented in Bloom et al. (2015) - will be developed in order to improve the management of the schools in Rio de Janeiro. The implementation of the operational practices will be done by the inter-institutional team formed by outstanding professionals from the Court of Accountability and the Secretariat of Education. They will work autonomously focused on the improvement of the management index of each school assigned to the treatment group. The team also will have to implement some practices, with a very reduced intensity if compared to the measures applied to the treatment group, in the schools assigned to the control group to avoid the "contamination effect". The contamination effect can be avoided leaving the participants of an experiment not knowing which group they are in, treatment or control. Therefore, placebo measures will be applied to the schools in the control group. It is relevant to highlight that only the inter-institutional team will have information about what are the schools assigned to treatment and control groups. This fact is included in the collaboration term.
