Long Range Educational Planning with Emphasis on Staff Development.
Featherstone, Richard L.; Hickey, Howard
This publication provides an overview of long-range planning and then provides a partially-programmed text to help school administrators conduct long-range planning for staff development. Section 1 presents a rationale for long-range planning, defines it, and provides an overview of the issues affecting it. This section discusses selecting the participants in long-range planning and the development of the process. Also included are points to be considered in designing the long-range planning process and a brief planning model. Section 2 is an outline for a multiyear staff development planning document. It explains each step in creating the document, from the title page to evaluation of the plan, and provides workspace in which to do so. This section includes information on doing a needs assessment, preparing a mission statement, writing goal statements, doing a discrepancy analysis, writing objectives, deriving criteria to signify attainment, and writing and figuring the cost of activities.
