MCPS Comprehensive Planning Process.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
Several working papers and a guidebook to the Comprehensive Planning Process of Maryland's Montgomery County Public Schools have been collected to form this document. The process itself was developed in 1979 and will be pilot-tested during the 1981 fiscal year. These materials, therefore, constitute an interim report on a process yet to be cast in final form. The program itself is divided into six stages and subdivided into twenty-one steps, covering the following areas: needs assessment; needs prioritization; development of measurable objectives; generation of alternative plans for meeting objectives; selection of preferred plans; integration and reconciliation of plans selected by different organizational units in the system; implementation, evaluation, and recycling of plans; and correlation of the implementation activities with budget development. The process is intended for use at every level of the system and by every organizational unit within the system. Included in the document are a conceptual overview, planning materials for developing school information summaries at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels, a discussion of and planning materials for needs assessment, a guide for planner supervisors, and a guidebook for the planning and implementation team, as well as supplementary information and sample forms.
