Des Moines Public Schools, IA. Dept. of Evaluation and Research.
Collected in this report are the Des Moines, Iowa, school district's goals and division objectives for 1982-83 and building objectives for fulfilling these goals. A prefatory statement by the superintendent describes a district planning and management system of continuous goal and objective setting combined with evaluation of progress in improving educational services. District goals are: (1) determining the future direction of the instructional program and guidance and other support programs, (2) improving the level of public understanding and support, (3) designing the educational program to ensure student achievement of district objectives and to make the most effective use of staff and student time, (4) providing the staff with adequate support to facilitate implementation of changes, and (5) implementing specific plans for the new delivery system for vocational/technical education and transitional schools. A chapter on division and departmental objectives identifies administrators responsible for implementing objectives for each goal. A school-by-school report of building objectives comprises the bulk of the document. A related report is devoted to assessment of progress toward these goals. (MJL)
