Since 1981, the Arizona Department of Education has coordinated the identification and dissemination of innovative programs and practices. A committee reviewed hundreds of submissions during the past 3 years and selected over 200 entries published in this catalogue as the best. Quality programs are broad in scope, time, and number of people involved. Each program must have been in operation for at least 2 years and be worthy of duplication. Quality practices are limited in scope, have been effective in a particular setting or for a particular problem or purpose, and have been in operation for at least 1 year and can be successfully duplicated. Each section is in alphabetical order by the school district of the originator, and a subject index has been provided for the entire catalogue. Programs in literacy, parent involvement, and students at risk of not succeeding in school have been labeled in italics and are shown in boldface type in the subject index. Each quality program entry includes a description, type of program, level, target audience, site, success indicators, and contact person. Each quality practice entry includes a description and a contact person. (MLF)
