A Data System for Comprehensive Planning in Education.
Higgins, K. Ronald; Conrad, M. J.
The report addresses itself to a basic need for educational planning--a data base for comprehensive planning--and documents the development of a planning information system at the completion of the third stage in a proposed 15-stage process. As such, the report is only in its initial phases of development. However, it is being disseminated on a limited basis in order to inform educational planners about the nature of this particular task and to solicit comments and criticisms from readers as part of its evaluation. The document defines comprehensive educational planning; presents a planning model; describes a planning information system for a local educational agency; and discusses its various components, including the base data system, data trees, and data reports. It then presents detailed illustrations of the use of the data system in obtaining a raw profile, an algorithmic profile, policy/environmental conditions, and projected alternate states. The document concludes with a description of preliminary field testing of the model. (Author/DN)
