Program Intent Handbook.
Landon, Glenda L.; Shirer, William
The purpose of this handbook is to help program subcommittees in completing the first phase of the self-study, which is referred to as establishing program intent. Establishing program intent is trying to put in writing what it is the program is supposed to do for the students it is funded to serve. It does not replace curriculum development; creating written documents about how the program is going to be run--including information about how to use materials, teaching strategies, course outlines, unit outlines, and the like--will still be necessary work for staff to do. Program intent just tells what all those things are being used for. This handbook lays out some specific methods for doing that. It is designed to be used selectively, however, and contains four parts: (1) district philosophy, goals, and priorities; (2) a program mission statement (or program philosophy if that term conveys more); (3) a set of exit level learner expectations; and (4) a set of enabling level learner expectations.
