Summary

This report explores the use of policy analysis as a tool for setting computer use policy in a school district by discussing the steps in the policy formation and implementation processes and outlining how policy analysis methods can contribute to the creation of effective policy. Factors related to the adoption and implementation of innovations are categorized and used as a framework for discussion. The first category, the climate of change, includes external factors such as social pressure and funding, and district or internal factors. The policy context is the second category; it includes the art of policy setting, a definition of a policy, and how to set policy. Discussion of the final category, the change process, covers procedures for clarifying problems, issues, and needs (PINS); question development; data collection, analysis, and synthesis; and identification of alternative policy options and their implications for implementation. Fifteen references are listed. (LMM)
