Improving Schools through Application of "Effective Schools" Research.
Vivian, Helen Wilson
This document describes the exploration and application of effective schools research resulting from university/public schools cooperation in the Springfield (Massachusetts) Public School System. The Academy for Excellence operated as a partnership between the University of Massachusetts School of Education and the Springfield Public School System for 4 years to provide a communications link and a conduit for making the resources of the university more accessible to and usable by Springfield school administrators, teachers, and students. In 1986, academy efforts turned to an exploration of the effective schools movement with a particular focus on strategies for improving attendance, academic skills, high expectations for students and improved school climate. Research outcomes and operational changes set in motion a far-reaching impetus for change in the Springfield public schools. (SI)
