Creating Technology Policy: A Systematic Model.
Carlson, Randal D.
This paper examines systematic policy formulation as it contributes to the strategic planning process for school technology. Policy affecting school technology exists at three distinct levels that correspond with the three general governmental levels: federal, state, and local. The Policy Formulation Model is a process that can be used to guide policy formation. Central to the process are the goals--the guiding force or the focus of the entire process. Circumscribing the process is evaluation. The following six elements surround the goals and may be accomplished in any order: (1) Articulate Policy; (2) Collect Data; (3) Determine Guidance; (4) Identify Resources; (5) Prioritize Options; and (6) Develop Policy. Evaluation is continuous throughout the process. (AEF)
