This annual report describes some of the major activities currently under way across California to implement educational reforms. The achievements described focus on raising standards in California schools, providing technical support to school districts, and charting progress at the local level through a statewide accountability program. The first section describes specific reforms in the following areas: curriculum, textbooks, accountability, the testing program, training of administrators, teachers, the middle grade task force, educational technology, safe schools, and health education. The second section focuses on specialized programs: the school improvement program, career-vocational preparation, special education, bilingual education, compensatory education, and adult/alternative education. The third section, "providing support," describes state initiatives for child development, dropout programs, school facilities management, and school finance. (TE)
