Comprehensive Plan for Coordination of Preservice and In-Service Professional Preparation of Educational Personnel in the State of California. Prepared in Response to Public Law 95-561 as an Amendment to the California Plans for Titles IV and V of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
California State Commission for Teacher Preparation and Licensing, Sacramento.; California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Developed by a committee from all major educational consituencies, this comprehensive plan outlines the problems, goals, components, and mechanisms for coordinating California's preservice and inservice training of teachers and other educational professionals. Recent proliferation of training programs has caused problems in cooperation, funding, and philosophy and raised legal and institutional constraints. The comprehensive plan's goals include removing these barriers, identifying needs, funds, and programs, and developing communication and plan evaluation methods. At the same time the plan is to be client-centered, flexible, and fiscally realistic, while preserving institutional autonomy. The report lists four plan components: (1) identifying relevant state and federal legislation; (2) cataloging all funding sources; (3) identifying existing plans for preservice and inservice training coordination; and (4) listing all relevant public and private educational programs. Included in the mechanisms for plan implementation are a policy council made up of state personnel to carry out the plan, and a statewide committee of major training clients, suppliers, and brokers to work with ad hoc constituent committees to provide ongoing evaluation and proposals. Charts and text outline the report's procedures for plan approval and implementation, and describe the relationship among plan participants, needs, and suppliers. (RW)
