Goal Development in Education: A Planning Handbook for School Districts. Handbook Series on Comprehensive Planning for Local Education Districts, No. 2.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Research, Planning, and Evaluation.
In this handbook is described a 7-State comprehensive planning process that incorporates goal development. A section on goal development explains what goals are, how they can be developed by the community, what happens after they have been written and accepted by the district, and provides several examples of goals developed by other State and local education agencies. Another section describes three types of models -- conferences, interviews, or surveys -- that were designed and field tested by the "Our Schools" project. In a section on managing goal development activities, the duties of the advisory council, the managing body for the goal development process, are outlined. Included are factors to be considered in choosing goal development activities, a sample program of goal development activities, writing reports, and a sample preliminary report. The appendix contains guidelines for group discussion leaders and recorders, some sample minutes, copies of news releases and letters of invitation, a description of the leadership identification process, a district profile data form, a teacher questionnaire, and a bibliography.
