Information is provided in this directory about 256 schools working with the school-based-management process, "Onward to Excellence" (OTE), to improve student performance. This directory provides information about recently trained OTE schools and about those longer term OTE Schools not profiled in last year's directory. Each entry includes a school contact person, the OTE status of use, school level, number of students, area (for example, small city, large city, suburban, or rural), student population (composition, free/reduced lunch, mobility), school-improvement goals and their progress status, and practice clusters. Most schools (68 percent) have goals that focus on improving student academic achievement, and 32 percent report that progress has not yet been formally assessed. The schools are indexed by effective-schools research-practice clusters, practice clusters selected by schools, and goal and content areas selected by schools. (MLF)
