The McGill Action Planning System (MAPS): A Strategy for Building the Vision

Written Material

The MAPS process is a way of putting into practice the assertion that 'all children belong in the school community'. This article provides a detailed description of the MAPS process including structure used, content covered and the underlying assumptions of process. The team involved in MAPS includes the individual, family members, friends, teachers and other personnel. Because the involvement of peers is essential, the planning should not occur until the student has been a member of their school community. The content of the process includes seven questions, each of which flow from four underlying assumptions: inclusion, individualisation, teamwork and collaboration and flexibility.,The authors give an example of an individual's MAPS, as well as a discussion of its connection to individual education plans.
