The DeKalb Tech Model for Long-Range Planning.
DeKalb Technical Inst., Clarkston, GA. Office of Research and Planning.
The DeKalb Tech Model for Long-Range Planning provides the framework for a 3-year strategic planning document based on the Georgia State Board of Postsecondary Vocational Education's Evaluation, Planning, and Budgeting (EPB) process. The DeKalb Tech Model consists of five planning segments: (1) pre-planning, which includes the evaluation of existing capabilities, appointment of a planning committee, assessment of resource requirements, faculty and staff training, and establishment of a planning calendar; (2) strategic planning, which includes an update of institutional role and mission, community needs assessment, and institutional capabilities assessment; (3) operational planning, which involves an update of budget requirements and the specification of planned outcomes and program activities; (4) management, which includes the operation of programs and the identification of actual outcomes; and (5) evaluation, which involves program assessment and the development of the state EPB database. The implementation of the model is achieved through the integration of planning, budgeting and program review and through year-round participation in six planning components (i.e., program planning, community needs assessment, program assessment, budgeting, planning element evaluations, and planning summary development). This description of the DeKalb Tech Model includes general information on the college, illustrations showing the functioning of the model and the responsibilities of various administrative and program offices for developing and evaluating planning elements, and a step-by-step listing of 15 planning activities.
