Urban Schools. [Urban School Improvement Paper 2].
This report describes the first phase of a School Improvement Project which is currently being implemented in the elementary schools of New York City. The project's design is described as the bringing together of parents, administrators, teachers, community people, and auxiliary staff to write a school improvement plan which could be implemented and subsequently bring about more effective instruction. The report explains the first phase, which consisted of the researching of assessment needs in nine schools categorized as improving, maintaining, or declining schools. The involvement of parents, teachers, and administrators in cooperative planning; the development of curriculum materials; the eventual implementation of new educational strategies; and the provision of information to the School Improvement Project Committee are cited as the reasons for the assessment.
