Abstract

Action planning is fundamental for successful program implementation and evaluation. The process of writing clear, realistic plans that outline the vision and mission of a school wide change effort is a challenging endeavor. School change efforts are likely to suffer when action planning fails to provide good strategies toward reaching program objectives, identify the roles and responsibilities of major stakeholders, and determine the indicators of assessing successful implementation. This study describes the method, process, and outcomes of the iterative process employed in conducting document analyses on the 149 Explorer Schools action plans. The purpose of disseminating this study is twofold: (1) to inform those who plan to measure effectiveness of a new educational program through assessing school action plans and (2) to guide those who plan to lead an educational change initiative through action planning
