Preservice and Inservice Education. State Plan for Fiscal Year 1982. Approved by State Board of Education July 14, 1981.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This document builds on the groundwork established in the 1981 State Plan by the Kansas Statewide Inservice Task Force. This task force was appointed by the Kansas State Board of Education for the planning and implementation of a statewide teacher inservice process and for the coordination of preservice and inservice activities. Based on the premise that effective preservice and inservice education is a necessity for effective and accountable schools, the State Plan outlines the objectives and activities through which the state will implement a professional development process. Chapter One describes the planning process for establishing a statewide system for inservice needs assessment. Chapter Two identifies four objectives for fiscal year 1982 along with evaluation procedures to determine if the objectives have been met. Three inservice components, designed to further these objectives, and involving local education agencies, professional growth and a delivery system, are listed in Chapter Three. The management of the State Plan is described in Chapter Four, including the role of the Kansas State Board of Education, its appointed advisory boards, and the Kansas State Department of Education. Chapter Five contains an outline of the evaluation of the eight objectives in the 1981 State Plan, and Chapter Six briefly describes the process of evaluating this plan. Appendices include definitions of the terms used in the State Plan and lists of the memberships of the Teaching/Administrator Standards Boards' committee on Preservice and Inservice Education, the Professional Teaching Standards Advisory Board, and the School Administrator Professional Standards Advisory Board.
