Anderson, Nancy W.
In light of court orders and recommendations by the Cleveland Board of Education, the Magnet Schools Planning Committee convened to reconsider earlier magnet school plans, review recent literature related to magnet schools, conduct a needs assessment, enlist the evaluation aid of experts in the field of magnet schools, study magnet school programs operating in other urban areas, and write a master plan (in the form of recommendations) for developing magnet schools. This report contains the overall results of the committee's work. The procedures section of the report presents information on the committee's work, the use of experts for evaluation, studies of programs in other cities, and results of the needs assessment. The findings section contains information on community involvement, linkage of magnet schools to non-school agencies, site selection, staff selection and training, cost factors, student recruitment and admissions, evaluation, program development, and planning goals. The final section includes conclusions and recommendations regarding the aforementioned areas. (MK)
