This document is the final report of the San Jose Teachers Association "Teacher Involvement Project," designed to improve school capacity for problem solving through teacher involvement in the decision-making process. The report concerns the management, the program, and the activities of the third year of the program, and is divided into seven sections. Section one investigates the role of the principal investigator/consortium and describes the evolution of the role from a single individual investigator into a consortium of teacher practitioners, as well as consortium processes and functions. Section two discusses project outcomes, i.e., mini-grants, workshops, school outcomes, and consortium development. Section three examines maintenance (continuance) of the program after the end of government funding. Section four examines project information dissemination efforts. Section five examines the possibilities of program replication in other school districts. Section six presents general program observations and recommendations. Section seven presents a glossary of terms used in the report. Eight appendices are included, detailing teacher involvement assumptions, recommendations drawn from project teacher interviews during the second year of the program, project staff membership, organizational charts, and other materials.
