Planning-Evaluation in a Medium-Size School District.
Giroux, Roger M.
The rationale, operational framework, and implementation case study of a planning-evaluation model for a medium size school district are discussed. The system defines a management information function in the three components of planning, operations, and evaluation. The relationship among these components is presented in both diagram and narrative form. The skills needed by personnel and the objectives they are to attain are identified. A description is given of the computer-based management tools particular to each component. The purpose of the system is to provide timely and accurate information to educational managers, which allows for discrimination between alternative courses of action at any time during program development or operation. The ultimate goal of the system is to relate the benefits of a program to the costs through a well defined and specified plan of operation. (Author)
