Ludka, Arthur P.
This report is an interpretation of the Colorado Department of Education's attempt to meet a pressing challenge in education: the need for the state to provide the leadership and coordination that is necessary in the development and implementation of state-wide plans to effect needed changes in education. This report attempts to: (1) Determine the various factors that contribute to the planning emphasis in the state education department; (2) Analyze the significant elements of the planning process; (3) Identify the methodologies and techniques used in orientation, and in building a readiness on the part of state and local education agency personnel to participate in the planning process; (4) Determine the sequence of events that served to move the planning process to where it is today; (5) Identify the interactions in educational planning between educational agencies at the state and local levels; (6) Identify the role of personnel who provided the leadership to make the department a viable change agency. The Colorado Department of Education is committed to new educational thrusts and is organizing its resources to implement them in an effective manner. The resources in the department will be utilized at a maximum to plan and attain improvement of education in Colorado. (ON)
