This report assesses the quality and effectiveness of the educational services (partnership schools) provided to at-risk students in Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), Wisconsin. It discusses the major themes emerging from the review of the school-by-school study and the issues that should be considered in the planning and implementation of future alternative education programming and the enactment of related policy. Additional topics examine the quality and extent of monitoring, supervision, support services to, and successful practices of MPS partnership schools. Major themes and problem areas discussed include: (1) the absence of multicultural curricula, (2) perceptions held of community-based partnership schools, (3) partnership autonomy and statutory compliance, (4) authentic assessment and credit granting, (5) individualized educational training plans, (6) staff development, (7) parental involvement, and (8) behavioral reassignment programs.
