Stay In--You Win: Module Three. Planning Your Stay In--You Win Initiatives.
Module Three of the Alberta project "Stay In--You Win" is presented in this document. This module provides for an integrated strategy involving community, parents, students, and teachers. A collaborative team planning approach is used to maximize the "buy-in" of all teachers. The stated objectives of the module are to introduce a planning-for-change process for educational improvement; to provide an interactive workbook for planning school-based dropout prevention initiatives; and to encourage ongoing program development in dropout prevention. These topics are covered: (1) factors for student success and failure; (2) strategic planning; (3) developing required policies and procedures; (4) operational planning and budgeting; (5) implementing; (6) monitoring, evaluating, auditing, and adjusting; (7) communicating; and (8) identifying potential dropouts. A section on planning an individual school's initiatives describes seven steps for establishing priorities: assess the facts on dropping out in the particular school; assess the school's major objectives; examine how to integrate dropout prevention initiatives; examine how to involve staff; examine what initiatives need to be developed; examine how to monitor, evaluate and adjust initiatives; and determine how results are to be communicated.
