Program Review Model.
Lafleur, Clay
A program review model that can be used at the system level in the Simcoe County in Ontario (Canada) schools is presented. Program review is a process of systematically marshalling information so as to enable individuals to critically debate a specific program and eventually make more informed decisions about the program. A variety of conceptual approaches is required to reflect system priorities and indicate the size and scope of each program. Both qualitative and quantitative measures should be used whenever possible. Program review is necessary for accountability and program development. The model for Simcoe County contains the following steps: (1) determine the need for a review; (2) initiate preplanning; (3) develop a focus; (4) prepare for data collection; (5) collect the data; (6) analyze the data; (7) prepare suggested courses of action; (8) present the findings; (9) develop the action plan; and (10) undertake follow-up activities. Fifty-nine procedures within the 10 steps are presented. Strategies that facilitate program review are highlighted. Although designed for system-level evaluation, program review procedures and strategies can be used at the classroom and school levels. Twelve figures illustrating the model and 38 references are included. (SLD)
