This description of the Clinical Schools Project (a partnership which includes San Francisco State University, San Francisco Unified School District, and United Educators of San Francisco, California) contains a project description, three papers, and a proposal for establishing the project. The project description outlines the project, defines a clinical school, identifies the six public schools that participated in the project, lists program personnel, outlines roles, and provides copies of training agendas. The first paper, "Everyone on Center Stage: Efforts toward Effective Collaboration in the Clinical Schools Project San Francisco State University," analyzes some of the problems encountered while trying to effect collaboration among the partners during the program's first year. The second paper, "A Clinical School Evolves," explores the phases through which the project evolved at one site (Jose Ortega Elementary School) and addresses concerns related to the most recent phase from the perspective of the university facilitator, classroom teachers, and site administrator. The third paper, "Interorganizational Linkages & Interprofessional Relationships: The Clinical Schools Project," briefly describes the initial implementation of the project, identifies and examines tensions associated with forming interorganizational relationships, and suggests ways to facilitate linkages. The proposal includes an outline of the experimental, 3-semester preservice graduate teacher education program. The Clinical Schools Project is one of the five sites within the AT&T Teachers for Tomorrow program. (IAH)
