Summary

There are many resources available for supporting Title I or school-improvement processes, but many of them present a disjointed picture of the complicated process. This guidebook was developed to provide a coherent framework for planning educational improvement and can be used to support any school or district staff working to improve an education program and enhance student learning. The guidebook discusses details of the seven steps to the planning process: (1) prepare to plan; (2) know the situation; (3) build a knowledge base; (4) define a vision and develop strategies; (5) implement and move forward; (6) monitor progress; and (7) evaluate. The guide is based on the rationale that school improvement is in the interest of children; that a strong plan will focus on changes in curriculum and instruction; and that the potential for program success is enhanced if those most directly involved also contribute to and support its development. Thirteen tables and two figures (a sample planning matrix and planning-development worksheet) are included. (Contains 30 references.) (LMI)
