Butler, Jocelyn A.; Batey, Anne
This directory includes information about schools that are working to improve student performance through the school-based management process "Onward to Excellence." Nearly 500 schools were sent an extensive questionnaire asking for detailed information about activities using "Onward to Excellence" and about results of that work. Data received from 235 schools are featured, including information from 130 elementary schools, 44 middle/junior high schools, 34 high schools, and 27 schools with multiple levels of students. Each responding school is included once in the alphabetical listings in one of four sections of the directory. Three indices are provided: (1) the list of practice clusters from "Effective Schooling Practices: A Research Synthesis"; (2) a chart noting which schools selected which practice clusters in creating their prescriptions for improvement; and (3) an index of schools organized by goal content area.
