Secondary Vocational Education Program Review/Planning Handbook.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Michigan Vocational Education Resource Center.
An established goal of the Michigan Department of Education is that annual and long-range educational planning will be improved and expanded. The purpose of this Program Review/Planning Handbook is to recommend procedures and instrumentation through which educators at the local level may plan and conduct a program review and prepare and implement a written action plan for vocational education. The recommended Program Review/Planning process described in this guide is closely coordinated with the mission, goals, and objectives specified in the Annual and Long-Range State Plan for Vocational Education in Michigan. The guide begins with a summary of the program review/planning process and its background, and lists secondary vocational education goals and objectives. The 15 steps of the Program Review/Planning Cycle are then described. These steps are the following: obtain necessary support; identify Program Review/Planning coordinator and assistant; identify committee and activities; collect data; tabulate data and display findings; develop conclusions; prepare program review report; organize the plan development phase; identify needs; set priorities of needs; develop strategies for proposed action; prepare written action plan; enlist support for plan implementation; implement plan; and monitor plan and reassess. The program review planning instrument and various necessary blank forms are included in the guide. (KC)
