Now that participants understand an action plan and its elements, introduce this slide by telling them there are three types of MEP action plans: state, local, and individual.
Refer participants to their Outline (p. 3) and have them quickly review the three types of MEP action plans listed.
Ask participants to identify some of the key differences between the three plans.
Listen to comments from participants and acknowledge reasonable responses. If participants have trouble identifying key features of the plans, particularly the individual plan, help by rephrasing for accuracy and clarity.
State – is the big picture for the State; includes overall direction for all recruiters across the state.
Local – should align with goals of the state plan; smaller states may use the state plan, rather than developing local plans.
Individual – should align to local and state goals and objectives; specific to own work; should result in a “to do” list with timeline.
