The Planning, Evaluation and Resource Management Model: PERM. Volume 1 in the PERM Handbook Series.
Lucco, Robert J.
To help school boards, educators, and citizens in Connecticut do more comprehensive district planning, this handbook introduces the planning, evaluation, and resource management (PERM) model and describes how it works. Section 1 of the document gives an overview of the planning process, defines comprehensive planning, and answers general questions about the PERM model and its phases, about who should have responsibility for planning, and about the necessity of continuous planning. The PERM model itself, presented in section 2, may extend over two cycles, covering 11 years, and includes four phases: (1) definition of district goals and student objectives, with community participation; (2) assessment of district needs, assignment of priorities to goals, analysis of existing instructional programs, generation of solutions to problems, and planning of program implementation; (3) evaluation of the programs to judge whether their goals are being met; and (4) reallocation of district resources based on the evaluations. A glossary of 94 planning terms is provided in the document's final section. (Author/RW)
