Pascarelli, Joseph T.; And Others
A model of proactive planning is presented in this paper which incorporates the latest research findings related to: (1) environmental scanning (external); (2) long-range planning (internal); (3) strategic planning; and (4) educational management. Proactive planning as it occurs in the private sector is analyzed and valuable lessons which can be learned by educational leaders are underscored. The focus of the paper is on creating a vision as a leader's first role, followed by attracting people who can help realize that vision and share responsibility for achieving it. This document is one of three publications making up the Pathways to Growth series, designed to assist school leaders in planning and implementing organizational growth in the schools. (LR)
