George Washington High School Study. Final Evaluation Report.
Harmon, David J.
This study's purpose is to support educational planning and decision-making through systematic evaluation. Staff members of George Washington High School (GW), feeder junior high school staff members and the superintendent of Kanawha County Schools are the main audience. The School Based Evaluation Model provided the conceptual basis for this study. Preliminary context evaluation processes resulted in the identification and prioritization of five areas of concern: (1) achievement; (2) use of unstructured time; (3) curriculum and instruction; (4) social acceptance at GW; and (5) discipline. Major data collection and analyses provided information used in the reporting process. This document is the primary reporting vehicle. The narrative portion of this document is a three-part presentation: methodology; results; and summary of critical findings, conclusions and recommendations. Methodology is presented similarly: instrumentation and other data sources; subjects and sampling; and data gathering and analysis. Critical findings, conclusions and recommendations comprise the final section. The final process directs the GW staff to return to the planning process and continue the evaluation. (Author/CE)
