A Management and Documentation System for the Dine Teacher Corps Program '78.
Wilson, Roger; Salas, Dennis
The basic premise behind the Dine Teacher Corps Project is that teacher pre-service and consequent inservice education and training is held to be a crucial factor in upgrading the quality of education received by American Indian students, particularly in a reservation setting. Although the Dine Teacher Corps Project includes three phases, only Phase I--Planning has its management system developed thus far. The management system is organized into six categories: (1) planning, to provide management control of the analytic and decision making activities conducted by the appropriate staff, to identify needs, problems, objectives, and program direction, and to analyze the decision making essential to the conduct of other processes; (2) programming, to develop the specific program plans as identified in category l; (3) budgeting, to develop the resource costs of each program plan and maintain fiscal information essential to the conduct of each program; (4) forming a community council, elected to insure the operation of parity decision making; (5) documenting and evaluating progress, by systematic collection of evidence to authenticate facts, to substantiate claims and opinions, and to support inferences drawn from the evidence; and (6) developing a chain of command or ladder of communications, to illustrate level, roles, and linkages of the Dine Teacher Corps Program '78.
