This report, the second in a series of six, presents the findings of evaluative studies of six Level I Model Technology School sites which were conducted as part of Phase II of the California Educational Technology Assessment Program. The project sites are: Alhambra City School District (two schools); Cupertino Union Elementary District and Fremont Union High School District (two schools); Los Angeles Unified School District (two schools); Monterey Peninsula Unified District (four schools); Hueneme Elementary District (one school); and Sacramento Unified School District (three schools). Data were collected from four sources: (1) key documents about the projects, including the original proposal, annual reports, and products produced by research partners for each project; (2) two site visits to each project site; (3)a self-assessment inventory; and (4) student, teacher, and visitor surveys. The report begins with background information on the Educational Technology Local Assistance Program, Educational Technology Assessment Program, and this study. An overview of the Model Technology Schools (MTS) Level I is then provided, including background information, program planning, program development, project implementation, management of resources, support funding, outcomes, and current status. A detailed description of the study design is followed by separate reports on each of the project sites. It is noted that, although the primary purpose of this volume is to provide a descriptive account of the MTS Level I Projects, the summary that concludes this report contains some cross-site descriptive information. The MTS Level I Evaluation Data Collection Instruments (including both English and Spanish versions of the student questionnaire), survey results, and interview protocols are appended. (AEF)
