Equity in Corrections: A Generalized Planning Model.
South Carolina Univ., Columbia.
This guide is a generalized planning model for administrators and mid-management personnel who are trying to develop and maintain effective correctional systems, and to ensure equity for women and minorities employed in these systems. It contains directions for developing systematic, proactive equity plans for implementation by correctional agencies. The generalized planning model gives step-by-step instructions and general guidelines to be followed in producing correctional agency or institution plans which comply with legislative mandates and implement agency or institution goals for affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. Following a section of directions for users, the planning model consists of the three chapters in the guide and a flowchart. Since there are three major parts which should be included in an agency plan, the three chapters describe briefly the three components, and give directions for writing each section in an agency plan. Chapter 1 tells how an agency develops a rationale for equity; Chapter 2 explains how an agency assesses needs for equity; and Chapter 3 describes how an agency sets goals and implements activities. The flowchart model, which is a graphic representation of the functions involved in planning, shows the three major functions described in the three chapters, and also shows the elements which make up each function. Appendixes contain a description of the development of the generalized planning model; sample forms for use in making equity plans; and a bibliography. (KC)
