Especially for Teachers: The Connection. An Invitation to School Improvement in North Carolina, 3.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
North Carolina's educational reform effort is composed of three related programs--the Basic Education Program (BEP), the School Improvement and Accountability Act (Senate Bill 2), and a new system of state accreditation. Information about the complementary and interdependent connection among the three programs is provided in this publication. The BEP establishes state curriculum standards and guidelines for resource allocation. Accreditation is a mandatory process of measuring outcomes of the BEP, involving two types of standards: performance and opportunity. Senate Bill 2 gives local teachers and administrators decision-making authority over resource utilization, increasing local control but also increasing accountability. Answers to specific questions are provided in the last section. One figure is included. (LMI)
