Monitoring Project CANAL, Total Site Training for 42 Phase I Schools (September 13, 1990 to June 6, 1991). First Quarter, Year 4 Progress Report (Period Ending November 30, 1991).
Davidson, Mary E.; Kurtz, Norman R.
This report examines the participation of 42 Phase I Chicago (Illinois) Project CANAL public schools in total site training (TST). TST is intended to provide participating schools and their core planning team (CPT) members with information on instructional strategies and program models for improving academic achievement. Participation by the CPTs, teachers, and staff at each CANAL school is possible because of the availability of a CANAL cadre to replace these personnel at their schools on the TST day. Given the presence of the cadre staff, the report notes that participation was lower than might be expected. Data provided in the report show that more than half (621) of the CPT members did not take part in TST, and 566 CPT members did participate in TST. For the majority of those individuals serving on CPTs, the goals of TST were unrealized because they did not participate in TST. In addition, as many as 3 of the 42 schools had no TST participants. Included are 3 tables. Six appendices provide a TST summary table, a table of data concerning TST for child parent centers, a schedule of Project CANAL training center activities, a list of Phase I CANAL schools, a list of Monitoring Commission for Desegregation Implementation staff, and 2 tables illustrating the budget status of the project.
