Description of an inservice training program for implementation of the prototype information system designed by RAND for the Los Angeles Unified School District. The impact of decisionmaking at the school level on decisionmaking at other levels was a primary consideration in the design of the training program. The program was developed to take account of the analytical aspect of decisionmaking--the various types of analysis that would be done by staff members, the problems they would encounter, the tools they would need, and the data they would use. The course content of the program covers the basic concepts and tools needed to use the information generated. Special emphasis is given to an orientation to the information system in terms of its inputs and outputs. A format is suggested for conducting the program that includes the time period of instruction, the method, the materials, and the nature of the participants and staff.
