Restructuring for Diversity.
Villa, Richard A.; Thousand, Jacqueline A.
Outcomes of a mainstreaming program implemented in 1984 by the Winooski Public School District (Vermont) are presented in this paper. All children in the community receive their education in general education classrooms and community settings. This paper identifies the evolutionary processes and key organizational and instructional practices that have enabled district restructuring for diversity. Steps involved in the process included the development of a mission statement, an in-class service delivery model, teaching teams, student-teacher collaboration, and the redefinition of student, teacher, and administrator labels and roles. One table is included. (Contains 24 references.) (LMI)
