The Process of Educational Planning: PROJECT DESIGN. Interagency Planning for Urban Educational Needs, Number 31.
Eastmond, Jefferson N.
This planning overview is part of phase two of PROJECT DESIGN, an ESEA Title III project administered by the Fresno City Unified School District. Developing a long-range interagency master plan for Fresno involves three separate but interrelated activities. The first branch of activity consists of conducting a needs assessment (EA 002 822 thru EA 002 845). In the second branch, results of the needs assessment are used to identify priority problems and to define procedures for solving them when immediate and intermediate action is necessary. This involves defining and analyzing priority needs, generating alternative solution strategies, selecting the optimum strategy, drawing a detailed master plan for implementing that strategy, and evaluating. At each step in the problem-solving process there is communication with the Community Planning Register (EA 002 851 and 852). This interchange allows for the third branch, which is the linking of immediate problem solving with that of a long-range educational and community master plan. (Author/DE)
