Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
A summary of requirements and provisions of early childhood and basic skills programs and a framework for and the requisites of thorough and systematic planning which can be held accountable for what the student learns are provided in this document. A plan that clearly establishes criteria for what needs to be done and why, the actual planning model, involvement in planning, and a flow chart of major planning activities are discussed. A list of twelve key planning tasks for the programs are noted. This includes the re-examination of the overall framework of the existing provisions for planning in each school and in the district. Another section specifies portions of the law and offers suggestions for assisting districts and schools to implement the intent of the new legislation for developing and improving programs for children or for adults. Areas that are covered here are advisory groups, instructional programs, personnel, educational policy, individualized diagnostic instruction, staff development and inservice training, the use of parents in the classroom and in home visitation, and parent education. Extensive coordination and cooperation being considered to be required for the formation and implementation of the program, this document purportedly provides a form of practical assistance and direction in accomplishing Florida's educational goals.
