Program Development: Procedures for Long-Range Planning.
Gile, Mary Stuart; And Others
Intended particularly to help educators meet the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, this handbook on long-range planning was also designed to be used by anyone needing to relate student needs to information gathered through planning and needs assessment activities. The first chapter describes the intent of long-range planning and provides key definitions. Chapter two discusses the four major processes in program development: long-range planning, annual assessment, selection of students for the program, and diagnosis of student needs. As outlined in chapters three and four, long-range planning and annual assessment involve preplanning, planning in committee, collecting relevant information, summarizing the data, and designing a program based on the information gathered. Chapter five covers the recording and summarizing of the relevant information, including achievement test scores, retention records, grades, and other performance indicators. The final chapter concerns the varied methods for developing Title I programs, urges consideration of several factors in the development process, and concludes with a program element checklist for assessing the adequacy of the program developed. Eight resource sets useful at different stages of the planning process are appended. (PGD)
