Gipe, Linda, Comp.
This directory supplement provides information about 211 schools (in British Columbia, Department of Defense Dependent Schools--Panama, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Oregon, Pacific Jurisdictions, Washington, and Wyoming) working with the school-based management process Onward to Excellence (OTE), which seeks to improve student performance. This 1992 supplement contains information only about those schools not profiled in previous editions of the directory (1988-91). Questionnaires were sent to 550 participating schools not included in the 1991 directory, of which a total of 211 responded: 125 elementary schools, 29 middle/junior high schools, 33 high schools, and 24 multilevel schools. School entries are listed according to education level. Each school entry contains information about the school contact person, the OTE status of use, school level, number of students, area (e.g., small city, suburban), student population (composition, free/reduced lunch, mobility), school improvement goals and their progress status, and practice clusters. Most schools have goals that focus on improving student academic achievement, and approximately one-half of the schools report no current formal assessment in use. The schools are indexed by effective schools research practice clusters, practice clusters selected by schools, and goal and content areas selected by schools. (LMI)
