Ten-Year Plan for Educational Excellence.
Allsopp, Anne H.; And Others
Five classroom teachers developed this long range plan for achieving educational excellence in the Anne Arundel County Public School System of Maryland during the decade of 1980s. Part I of the report gives an introduction including a list of suppositions, provides a conceptual framework that guided the work of the planning team, and describes the process used by the planning team. Part II addresses general concerns and overriding issues that transcend departmental or purely programmatic considerations. Among the issues discussed in this section are grade organization, graduation requirements, allocation of instructional time at all levels, staffing, evaluation of programs and staff development. Part III of the report addresses each program on an individual basis. Among the recommendations are pre-kindergarten programs for all four-year old children, use of calculators and computers in all instructional programs as appropriate, expansion of gifted/talented/advanced programs, implementation of an elementary school foreign language program, and implementation of a separate health education curriculum. Finally, Part IV discusses some preliminary activities for implementing the Ten-Year Plan. (Author/GK)
