Sample Detailed Action Plan Template

Share this post

Teachers, School Heads, and even Supervisors every now and then are required to make an Action Plan. But not single one template is standardized – as far as the elements go.

In short, every office, every school, every district has their own way of how to make an action plan. But the best action plan model should have all the elements in it.

What are these elements?

Among the most reoccurring elements we saw in many action plans all over the internet either have one or two of these in our list. In fact, some action plans have more than these! Which we really found odd and redundant.

Thus, we synthesized all of it and created a single template that can address the need of the author, along with the objectives.

·      Areas of Concern

Every action plan must have a concrete identification as to what are the possible problems or issues each procedure will have. By being able to identify these concerns, the ability to prevent them are higher. If the issue could not be prevented, a definite measure can be used to resolve it.

·      Activity

A specific detail as to what will be done. However, it could be presented in a general title which will later be broken down and defined through the next element.

·      Objectives

It answers the question “What will the activity achieve?”. Objectives must be S.M.A.R.T. at the very least. Specifically aligned with every cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain.

·      Inclusive Dates and Venue

The specific time and place as to where the activity should take place. The inclusive dates must also

·      Person/Organizations Responsible

This item includes all individuals or group of individuals who are involved with the activity. The list could be identified in general terms but they must be specified from which group or category they belong to.

·      Resources Needed

This may refer to material and immaterial objects. It also includes individuals or person who may be referred to as resource persons involved in the activity. All other materials that may or may not be used in the conduct of the activity can be listed here as well.

·      Community Partnership

Refers to the different community and/or stakeholders who will be working with the activity. Which also includes the end-users or the beneficiaries of the activity. The item also refers to the specific involvement of a particular group on a specific activity – which depends on the objective. 

·      Success Indicators

A quantitative data which will be the basis of objective achievement. This item must reflect that the objectives which were set are attained. It should also be presented in a measurable manner, i.e. number or percentage.

We would like to share to all of you, a Sample Action Plan Template which we have filled-in already as a guide for you on how to make your own Action Plan in the future. Each item has been sampled from start to finish. 

This Sample Action Plan is considered as pre-stage activity. This means that the activity must not deviate with the action plan. The activity may have unforeseen changes due to uncontrollable circumstances e.g. the dates and venues changed. But, the general objectives of the Action Plan must remain the same. Unless, a new action plan is to be drafted.

    5. Indicate the scores per box in the specified dates between scores of 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest and 5 as highest). The rubrics for this is based on the KRA in the agreed IPCRF in your school/district/division.
    6. Once all entries are filled, the template will automatically generate your Rate for the End of the School Year. You can also track the scores of your DLL/LP every week as the Total and Rating per week is also indicated.
