Selected Characteristics of Massachusetts School Districts' Basic Skills Improvement Plans.
May, Leslie Steven
This report summarizes the contents of the 270 secondary level basic skills improvement program plans for reading, writing, and mathematics submitted by school districts in Massachusetts to the State Department of Education. School districts developed these plans in response to the State Board of Education Policy and Regulations published in 1978-79. Statistics are presented on the major components of the plans: public participation, objectives, assessment instruments, level of achievement, grade level for initial assessment, public information, and follow-up instructional programs and services. An analysis of the data in terms of how school districts appear to have responded to the Policy's requirements is also included. (Author/BW)
