Example of Initial Goal-Setting and Need Identification in Some New Hampshire School Districts.
Pickard, H. Stuart; Schweiker, Robert F.
Three school districts are examined in terms of what educational objectives are important and how well the schools are meeting these objectives. The first district incorporated goals listed by Phi Delta Kappa and questioned grade 5 parents, high school and junior high school students, and elementary, junior high school, and high school teachers as to perceived importance and performance standards for the 18 objectives. A table is presented showing areas of agreement among the groups, and there is a fairly high agreement within each group between the ranking of goals on importance and performance. The second school district used a similar method but did not divide parents, students, or teachers into subgroups. General agreement resulted on the relative importance of the goals, although there was less agreement on the areas of educational needs. The third district did not use general goals, defined in a questionnaire, but elicited five educational priorities from parents in the district. (SE)
