School Environment Handbook Part III: Planning Environmental Change.
Gillespie, Judith; deHaas, Patricia
This section of the School Environment Handbook can be used by schools to improve school environment and to develop the necessary change strategies. The handbook serves four major purposes. First, the material is designed to facilitate thinking about steps in the planning process. Second, it discusses how to set goals and to state them in ways which will make it easier to plan and carry them out. Introducing the steps involved in goal implementation is the third major purpose. The fourth purpose involves evaluation of the planning process, implementation, and results of change. Activities and analysis forms are provided for completing the following planning steps: (1) forming a planning group; (2) developing goals; (3) choosing among goals; (4) stating goals; (5) knowing the context for planning; (6) forming the working group; (7) developing plans; (8) choosing a model plan; (9) anticipating problems; (10) follow through and follow up; and (11) ongoing formal and informal evaluation. Forms are included for both formative and summative evaluation of the changes made to improve the total school environment. (JD)
