Pennsylvania School Improvement Program. Selection Process. Analysis of R & D Outcomes.
The Pennsylvania School Improvement Program (PSIP) was created to assist local schools and school districts in the development of curriculum improvement strategies. The process involves the use of "linkers," curriculum specialists who work with teams from the local level to ascertain needs, then connect the local teams with the research and development agencies that can provide information and resources to help meet those needs. One of these research and development agencies, Research and Information Services for Education, prepared this report presenting the basic skills programs selected by the agency for presentation to schools participating in PSIP. The programs, in the areas of reading, mathematics, self-concept, teacher training, and bilingual education, were drawn from the offerings of the National Institute of Education, the National Diffusion Network, and the Pennsylvania Diffusion Program. The report describes the nature of each program and identifies the school districts that selected each one. (Author/PGD)
