Target audiences: Identifying exactly whom you need to reach
Broad descriptions of the students you're trying to reach (e.g. "children who will benefit from a summer learning program") can make it difficult to focus your efforts and communicate with key stakeholders, such as principals. Be specific. Here are three examples:
Children at risk of retention,
Children at the lowest level of reading proficiency,
Children who have IEPs.
Goals: Make sure you can measure
In your written plan, goals should be numeric so you can measure your progress. Here are some examples:
500 students register for summer learning program,
- 100 students from each grade, 1st through 5th
- 90 percent of registered students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch,
80 percent of registered students attend on day one of the program.
Your goals will be determined by a number factors, your budget chief among them.
