The District Master Plan for School Improvement: Instructions and Suggestions. Revised.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This document provides step-by-step instructions for completing a school district master plan. It can be used by administrative personnel to pull together those policies, procedures, and criteria that can enhance an effective working partnership between school and district. The document uses boldface, italic type to identify instructions set forth in California state laws (Assembly Bill 65), followed by a clarification of the intent of the requirements and suggestions of what to do and to avoid. Examples of topics covered in developing a master plan include providing the public with information on school improvement, considering school site councils, and serving students with special needs. One section of the handbook is devoted to developing strategies to assist schools receiving grants and all schools implementing consolidated application programs. The appendices offer suggestions to small districts and districts in cooperatives. Also, a composite guide is offered at the end for continuing development and review of a school district master plan. (Author/LD)
