Using the Readiness Five Phase Plan To Facilitate the School Development Program and the Improvement of School Climate.
Ford, Barbara
The Bay Area Comer Development Program's "Readiness Five Phase Plan" was developed to bring the school sites involved in the Bay Area School Development Program (SDP) closer to the mission and goals of the program. To achieve this, a readiness assessment and checklists are used to determine if a site is ready to engage in the program. An analysis of the checklists is provided. Using the checklists, data from four schools were collected and compared. Results indicate that the checklists can be used by all four schools to focus on areas needed to proceed through the SDP and to improve school climate. Two of the schools showed positive movement in their readiness to engage in the change process, and after they entered into the SDP these schools indicated readiness to proceed through the SDP. The other two schools showed varying degrees of readiness to progress through SDP. All the schools reported beginning levels on the School-Wide Discipline Checklists, indicating an area needing continued focus and development. It is recommended that all schools should complete checklists annually and at the same time each year. Data should be collected systematically with complete demographic information included. Likewise, all adult stakeholders should complete checklists. (RJM)
