The Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Evaluation System of the Board of Education for the Borough of York. Management of Educational Resources System (MERS). Progress Report Number One.
York Borough Board of Education, Toronto (Ontario).
Three aspects of the York Borough's school instructional programs are discussed: program structure, program costs, and program evaluation. Some basic philosophies of the Management of Educational Resources System (MERS) are set forth and the early history of the project is described showing how the boardwide MERS evolved from a pilot experiment centered around a computer-based planning system. The committee organizational structure is presented and the personnel composition of the committees described in detail. Comments are made regarding the staff training requirements of MERS, and a schedule of planned activities is pursued in detail. Finally, significant behavioral observations about MERS to date are noted. (Author)
