01:759 Introduction to Educational Planning [Kirk]

Prerequisites: Nil.

This course, designed for the K-12 Education system, consists of theoretical and practical components designed to assist practicing principals as they develop their school plan. The concentrated theoretical component will allow the administrator to read and to discuss relevant literature with their colleagues, with the purpose of devising not only the plan but also a working model for how they will bring the school plan to fruition. A significant portion of the course will be focused on developing and using a data set, including school vision, mission, and profile documents, that will serve to inform the planning process and to enhance implementation and assessment strategies.

Credit cannot be held for both this course and 01:545 or 01:559.
