The main sections of the report are 1) management-control, process, diagnosis, and communication; 2) information data; and 3) conclusions, suggestions, and concerns. Major recommendations are that 1) scheduled time should be spent each week by the Follow Through director and other key administrative and model personnel observing classes, 2) all policy should be carefully specified before school begins, 3) the complete involvement of parents should be a major concern, 4) teachers and principals should be active participants at all planning meetings and conferences, 5) model oriented tests should be the basis of most assessment, and 6) there should be more of an emphasis on quality in the processing of data. An appendix includes the Follow Through data bank organization, feedback breakdown by schools, Follow Through objectives, priority of objectives, and comparison classes. (MBM)
