A Multi-Agency Center for Educational Planning in Santa Clara County. Project SIMU School: Santa Clara County Component.
Halverson, Don E.
This study was made to determine the need for a cooperative approach to planning services in Santa Clara County, and should such a need exist, to determine appropriate organizational and government structures, suggested objectives and activities, and suitable resource allocations to achieve the suggested objectives. The resulting position paper presents the thesis that a county (or regional) organization can be the source of valuable, coordinated assistance to citizens who address their attention to the future of their community. Such a center could provide data from many sources, assembled in a common and useful format. It could provide a means for interested persons to have an impact on decisionmaking bodies within the community, and could promote coordinated planning among school districts, leading to better solutions to all their future problems. An organizational pattern and a description of functions for a planning center are outlined. A short bibliography is included. (Pages 58-60 may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
