Partnership School Design.
Edison Project, New York, NY.
This handbook describes the Edison Project, a private company that was formed in 1991 to establish partnerships with school districts across the United States. The Edison Project tailors Edison's school design to the local community's needs; upgrades school facilities and brings in sophisticated technology; takes responsibility for daily operation of the school; is accountable to the local community for improving student achievement; and is compensated the amount currently spent by the community for each student's education. The Project creates small schools-within-a-school, called academies. Other features include nontracked student grouping, decentralization, and a year-round calendar. The handbook describes the Edison Project's mission and philosophy, school organization, curriculum, instructional philosophy, system for assessment and accountability, professional-development plan, use of educational technology, the role of families, and central support services. A list of project creators is included. (LMI)
