Goal Development Through Community Involvement for Roles and Responsibilities of Boards of Education Relative to Thorough and Efficient Legislation.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
New Jersey's legislatively mandated policy for a "thorough and efficient" (T & E) education requires each district to develop a community profile. This profile can be used by an Educational Goal Development Committee as an aid in establishing community involvement in the goal-setting process, as required by T & E regulations. This document describes the organization and activities of the Educational Goal Development Committee in obtaining community involvement, selecting goal development models, preparing an action plan, finding and validating educational goals, and reporting the committee's progress. Appendices provide a sample meeting agenda and minutes, a school district description form, a sample preliminary report, activity models for community involvement and goal development, and guides for discussion leaders and recorders.
