The Minneapolis Accountability Project 1972-1975. Three Year Report.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
The Minneapolis Accountability Project represents an effort to allow the community to evaluate existing school programs which are locally funded. The project informs the community about school problems, establishes a channel for expression of community concerns, and provides findings and proposals for educational change. This report describes the operation of the project during its first three years. Community evaluation committees, made up entirely of volunteers, were established to evaluate topics selected by a citizen advisory board. Five committee reports were completed: (1) Pupil Progress Reporting in the Minneapolis Schools, (2) The Use of Teachers' Skills in the Minneapolis Schools, (3) Basic Skills in the Minneapolis Schools, (4) Curriculum Development Procedures in the Minneapolis Schools, and (5) Community Participation in the Minneapolis Schools. Committee concerns, recommendations, and implementation efforts are discussed. (Author/BJG)
