An Administrator's Handbook for PCMP: Pennsylvania Comprehensive Mathematics Plan. Direction for the 80's.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
This handbook for administrators of school district mathematics programs outlines a set of procedures for implementing the Pennsylvania Comprehensive Mathematics Plan (PCMP) and provides a degree of standardization and a planning framework to encourage the communication of related ideas and successes. The procedural steps, instruments, checklists, and worksheets for PCMP implementation are presented in four sections. The first section covers the need for an effective mathematics program. The next section deals with needs assessment questionnaires covering school goals, staff development, and school evaluation. Section three outlines procedures for an administrator, in conjunction with the superintendent, to propose improvements in such matters as activities, costs, personnel, and schedules. The last section covers the tracking of proposal implementation by means of professional, school, and program evaluations. Three appendixes provide sample documents and forms as well as references. Sample documents include guidelines for long-range planning, a proposal to utilize the Pennsylvania mathematics education information retrieval system, procedures for curriculum development, and a request to conduct a pilot project. Sample forms include transparency masters for PCMP presentations, and needs assessment, budget, and district evaluation forms. (PB)
