Callaway Action Plan for An Effective School. Callaway High School, Jackson, Mississippi.
Mathews, Gary S.; And Others
This paper outlines the Callaway Action Plan for an Effective School (CAPES), a three year plan of action designed to produce the following characteristics of an "effective school": (1) administrative leadership; (2) instructional focus; (3) an orderly, safe environment; (4) high teacher expectations of students; and (5) the use of measures of pupil achievement as the basis for program evaluation. First, the conditions at Callaway High School in Jackson, Mississippi, which gave rise to the development of this plan, are described in terms of student needs, staff growth, and parental involvement. Next, goals, objectives, methods, timing, responsibility, and evaluation are detailed. A budget is included, as well as four appendices which comprise fifty percent of the document: (1) an outline for the collection of data for a study on organizational climate at Callaway High School; (2) a report of collected data; (3) the questionnaire used to collect data presented in the study; and (4) a letter sent to parents asking them to encourage their children to complete homework assignments.
