North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Development Services.
Guidelines for North Carolina public schools that are interested in developing and submitting plans for outcome-based education (OBE) pilot programs for the years 1993-94 and 1996-97 are offered in this document. The OBE program is based on the premise that all students can learn and focuses on the expectations for achievement necessary for students to function successfully after public school education. Following a message from the state superintendent, the relationship between OBE pilot programs and the performance-based accountability program (B-PAP) is described. Information on assistance resources, plan submission, and the review process is also provided. The majority of the document offers guidelines for plan development. Individual sections provide information on the following areas: (1) basic components and information to be included in the OBE plan; (2) the OBE criteria and related legislation; (3) how to develop an OBE evaluation plan; (4) how to complete requests for waivers; (5) how to develop timelines; and (6) how to develop the budget. Appendices contain a criteria checklist, an OBE legislative requirements checklist, forms, authorizing legislation for 1991 and 1992, and draft state exit outcomes. (LMI)
