University Facilitation of School Restructuring: Critical Milestones for Organization Transformation.
Davidson, Betty M.; Allen-Haynes, Leetta
Critical milestones in the university facilitation of meaningful school reform in schools serving at-risk students--schoolwide assessment, cadre-based planning, and pilot testing of new strategies--are examined in this paper. A training and facilitation mechanism developed by the University of New Orleans' (UNO) Louisiana Accelerated Schools Network is described, in which local universities act as change agents in school/university partnerships for implementation of the project. Included are discussions of the change process and suggestions for promoting collaboration and leadership styles, and for developing a training format. Program benefits include university facilitation and dual emphasis on student achievement and professional development. One figure is included. (20 references) (LMI)
