School-Based Planning Manual. Part II: Supplementary Materials.
Burton, Nancy; And Others
This is Part II of the Seattle Public Schools' School-Based Planning Manual, which is addressed to principals and program managers within the school district. An outgrowth of Project ACCESS, a program designed to assist Seattle schools as they move toward school-based management, the volume contains materials that supplement the planning model presented in Part I. In the first section, district-wide guidelines for school-based planning are given and basic district policies, procedures, and practices are outlined. A district organization chart precedes the guidelines themselves, which fall into five categories: curriculum and instruction, community and governmental relations, human resource administration, business and finance, and evaluation services. The second section contains sample data, which could be used as a model for other districts (Seattle school personnel originally received data specific to their schools in this section of the manual). The data profile students, communities, and school personnel. Suggestions are made for using data, test results, and summary reports for program planning. The final section contains sample planning worksheets. (KH)
