Strategies for Planning Staff Development Programs: A Web of Knowledge.
LaMesa - Spring Valley School District, CA.
In 1977, 13 staff development projects were initiated in California under ESEA Title IV-C. The task of each project was to design and implement a unique system for developing a comprehensive staff development program. The materials in this book describe one of the 13 staff development projects: a "Service Center" for staff development that was established to improve student achievement in the areas of language, reading, and mathematics in grades K-8. The ultimate goal of this project is to plan a total district staff development program that will enable administrators, teachers, instructional aides, and parent volunteers to develop a high degree of specific skills and knowledge in order to increase student academic growth in a climate that promotes learning. In this publication the staff development activities are described, and the staffing patterns and procedures for individualizing instruction are outlined. Required materials and instructions for replicating the project are offered. The appendixes contain project surveys, tests, and forms; and sample newsletters and inservice announcements. (Author/MLF)
