Initiating School Restructuring: A Case Study.
Naugle, Lottie; Reigeluth, Charles
How an elementary school (pseudonym, Sunny Days Elementary School) initiated school restructuring using the School Restructuring Process Model developed by Charles Reigeluth was studied, using formative evaluation to see how the actual experiences of the school might refine and improve the model. The model follows a three-phase process from initiation and preparation, through design and development to implementation and documentation. The researchers collected and analyzed documents, studied videotapes of the school's Renovation Committee, and interviewed committee members (six parents and six teachers). Although the three proposed phases of the model were retained, modifications were proposed for the initiation and preparation phase to increase assessment of the readiness of the community, better understand the current context, create a more stable membership and develop knowledge bases of members, and develop the design culture. The proposed additions must be tested in other school contexts to see if they are beneficial and worth retaining. (Contains 30 references.) (SLD)
