U.S. Department of Education FY 1999 Annual Plan, Volume 2: Program Performance Plans.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 called for the U.S. Department of Education to prepare an Annual Performance Plan which links the Department's budget request with its Strategic Plan. To meet that directive, Volume 2 of the Department's Strategic Plan for 1999 is presented here. It includes the program performance plans that cover all of the Department's programs. The Department's budget request aligns budgetary and other programmatic and management resources to help reach Strategic Plan goals and objectives. The Plan discusses education reform, particularly Goals 2000, and the role that education technology will play in these Goals. The specific areas covered in the Plan include education for the disadvantaged, impact aid, class-size reduction and teacher financing, school improvement, the America Reads challenge, Indian education, bilingual and immigrant education, special education, rehabilitation services, vocational and adult education, student financial assistance, higher education, educational research and improvement, and civil rights. All of the programs are designed to help the Department reach its four primary goals: (1) help all students achieve high academic standards; (2) provide a solid foundation for learning; (3) ensure access to postsecondary education and lifelong learning; and (4) make the Department a high-performance organization by focusing on results, service quality, and customer satisfaction.
