Utah's Educational Reform Programs, 1991-93.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
In November 1983, the Utah Education Reform Steering Committee issued the report "Education in Utah: A Call to Action." To meet Utah's double challenge of rapid growth and quality enhancement, the report stated that Utah needed to: (1) increase the allocation of financial resources to education; (2) demand reforms in many aspects of education; and (3) increase the productivity of each dollar committed to education. Highlighted in this publication are 11 reform programs that were developed to enhance educational quality in Utah. They include the following: the Career Ladder Program; the Early Intervention for Ensuring Student Success Program; the Experimental Developmental Competitive and Allocated Program; the Governor's Awards for Excellence; the National Diffusion Network (NDN) Program; the Site-Based Decision Making Pilot Program; the Star Schools "TEAMS" Program; the Strategic Planning Program; the Utah Center for Families in Education Program; the Utah Distance Learning and EDNET Expansion; and the Utah Public Education Foundation Incentives for Excellence Program. Individual sections describe the history, current status, and future directions of each of these reform programs. Also included are abstracts of reform projects funded under these 11 programs during 1991-93. (LMI)
