Case Study of an Accountable School District.
Merriman, Howard O.
This speech traces the inception and the operation of an accountability program in the Columbus, Ohio, public schools. The need to comply with the mandated evaluation requirement of ESEA Title I programs and to respond to a demand from the educational community that they be advised of the progress of these programs alerted the Columbus public schools to the fact that their system lacked proper performance evaluation tools. The evaluation of these programs was contracted, therefore, to the Ohio State University Evaluation Center. The speech explains how the evaluation center has operationalized accountability and presents the policies, processes, and product of the evaluation effort. (Author/JF)
