Local Planning Process and Model Goals and Objectives. Stay in School Initiatives, Book 3.
Neufeld, G. Ronald; And Others
This booklet, the third and last in a series of monographs on solutions to the problem of school dropouts, is designed to provide guidance for local organizations to address the needs of students at risk of dropping out. It sets forth the goals and objectives of a planning approach that illustrates how local communities could organize to increase graduation rates. The goals, listed in order of importance as determined by representatives of the education field who participated in two national forums of Canadian educators, include: (1) collaboration between organizations and coordination of services; (2) broad review of purpose and goals of education aimed at renewal/restructuring of education; (3) definition of dropout and at-risk students; (4) focus on prevention in the early years; and (5) development of schools' ability to respond as needed to individual students.
