Training for Leadership in Local Educational Improvement Programs. Unit 9. Analyzing and Improving the Implementation of a Local Educational Program.
McAdams, John A.; Taylor, Beverly Loy
No educational program, however well designed, will be successful unless it is effectively implemented. This is just as true of "traditional" programs as of innovative or changed programs that are newly introduced in a school system. Very often, what a school system should undertake is improving the implementation of traditional programs rather than introducing new programs. The same is true of a change program that has been underway for a reasonable period; often the need is to make its implementation more effective. A person who completes this unit should be able to identify and list the essential feature of a local educational program from a written or oral description of it, design a plan for assessing the implementation of the features of an educational program, design a plan for conducting a casual analysis of shortcomings in the implementation of an educational program, design a plan for identifying and evaluating resources likely to overcome the shortcomings identified, and design a plan for improving the implementation of an educational program.
