School-Based Needs Assessment Procedure. Planning Document 1. Rough Draft.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
A procedure for determining the degree to which student performance is meeting expected or desired levels is discussed. Five steps in conducting a needs assessment are listed: (1) a student body profile, relating data already available to the six system-wide goals, is provided for each school; (2) using the student body profile, brainstorming sessions are held to identify local school needs in each goal area; (3) the results of the brainstorming are converted to a questionnaire that asks respondents to indicate the relative importance of each need; (4) a needs assessment committee is established to determine which needs have priority for programming concentration in the coming school year; and (5) the student body profile and the perceptions used to identify the needs are now used to document the importance of the needs chosen for program concentration. A series of descriptive statements are given for each of the following: attainment of self-esteem, success in human relations and in service to society, facility in communications and basic skills, appreciation of cultural values and creative works, capability of succeeding in the world of work, and skill in the wise consumption of goods and services.
