There were seven (7) major components that made up the DAP (2003): (1) Standards and Assessment; (2) Reading First Initiative; (3) Personnel Quality and Accountability; (4) Home School Connection; (5) Federal, State and Local Programs; (6) System-Wide Needs and Assessment; and (7) School-Wide Indicator System. In September 2006, the Superintendent of Education appointed the Associate Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction, the Administrator of Research, Planning & Evaluation, and the Administrator of Federal Programs to collaboratively review and update the District Action Plan in September 2006.
The report is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Standards and Assessment; (3) Personnel Quality and Accountability; (4) School-Wide Indicator System; and (5) SY (School Year) 05-06 Exemplary Programs & Accomplishments.
Areas covered are: (1) standards and assessment; (2) personnel quality and accountability; (3) federal, state, and local programs; (4) home-school connection; (5) Education Indicator System; (6) system changes/needs; and (7) reading first/direct instruction.
These objectives, discussed in detail in the plan, are grouped into the following categories: (1) standards and assessment; (2) personnel quality and accountability; (3) federal, state, and local programs; (4) home-school connection; (5) Education Indicator System; and (6) system-wide needs/changes.
It is also necessary to create an indicator system that permits tracking progress in each element of standards-based reform.
