Indiana's 21st Century Schools Pilot Project.
Khan, Badrul; And Others
Findings of a study that examined the progress of three Indiana schools (Beech Grove Senior High School, Indianapolis; Linton-Stockton Elementary School, southwestern Indiana; and Richmond High School) toward educational innovation goals under the 21st Century Schools Pilot Project are presented in this paper. Each school is described in terms of its vision and mission, changed features, actual progress to date, and obstacles to change. Although the school environments and goals differ, they share the following themes: clearly defined visions; site-based, shared decision making; and an understanding of restructuring as a learning process. Common obstacles include resistant teachers and a lack of time and training. A copy of the legislation for the 21st Century Schools Pilot Project and a description of six pilot schools' vision plans are included. (LMI)
