SCALE Year 5 Implementation Plan


Upon reflection on the original SCALE theory of action, goals, and benchmarks (originally set forth in the SCALE Strategic Plan in July 2003), the SCALE leadership decided to make strategic modifications. We provide details of these changes in the Year 5 Implementation Plan. A majority of the benchmarks for Goals 1-4 were met during the first four years of SCALE. Others were revised, retired, or no longer deemed applicable to the work and direction of SCALE. In order to ensure that the benchmarks for Year 5 are aligned with the NSF Five Key Features, the work of the partnership, and the needs of the partners, the SCALE Leadership Team decided to revise the objectives and benchmarks for Year 5. To clearly present these strategic modifications and revised benchmarks, the Year 5 Implementation Plan is organized by partner.
