Edith Bowen Laboratory School Evaluation Committee Report Submitted to the 1994 Utah State Legislature.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the Edith Bowen Laboratory School (EBLS) at Utah State University. EBLS contributes to Utah State University by assisting in the training of preservice teachers, provides a quality education for elementary school students; and incorporates the interests of three local school districts. In 1989, a master plan developed for Edith Bowen included experimental projects in the areas of cross-age grouping, integrated curriculum, and alternative assessments. In addition, a framework was provided for increased research, development, and dissemination efforts. As the school approached completion of its 5-year master plan, a committee was selected to evaluate the school's mission, governance, program, and program funding. The findings, commendations, and recommendations of this assessment are presented in this booklet. It is suggested that a new 5-year plan be developed which modifies the EBLS mission and goals to meet the evolving needs of the 1990's. The bulk of the document is made up of the following appendixes: (1) the 1989 Master Plan for the EBLS (2) EBLS admission policy; (3) source of funding 1992-93; (4) Utah's Strategic Plan for Public Education; (5) EBLS Laboratory School Evaluation Committee Members; and (6) the EBLS evaluation report bibliography.
