Training for Planning Project. Final Report.
Paddock, Susan C.
Concerned with training local educational agencies in planning and administering community education programs, this report summarizes a year-long project in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. Included are a narrative description of the project and its activities, a list of objectives and agenda subects, assessment, a summary evaluation, and recommendations. The project was designed to produce six results, including the training of district teams in the three states, the development of three- to five-year plans, the development of a cadre of practitioners in local programs who could train others, and the establishment of a team of educational professionals in the three states who could provide technical assistance. The team approach and inclusion of three states was believed to have contributed to the participants' positive reactions to the training. Recommendations for future training include more time allotted to the selective recruitment and thorough orientation of team members, pretraining orientation for coordinators with emphasis on exchanging ideas, regular coordinator meetings, and the establishment of specific definitions for planning and programming.
