"An Annual Evaluation Report Based on School System Improvement Efforts" (Robert A. Gordon and Linda J. Dickson), reports on a program serving students (ages birth-21) in a regional, community-based approach that successfully implemented a school improvement plan with all other school system instructional components. "Staff Training Strategies for Implementing the Boys Town Education Model in Georgia Psychoeducational Network Programs" (Linda J. Dickson), reports on a study that investigated the strategies used in training 154 staff in the implementation of this model in four GPN programs. "Implementation of the Boys Town Education Model in Four Georgia Psychoeducational Network Programs: Initial Impact on Student Social Skills and Adjustment" (Ronald W. Thompson and others), evaluated the implementation of the Boys Town Education Model with 189 students with severe emotional and/or behavior disorders and found that students made significant gains in social skills and school adjustment. "GPN Report Card-A Status Report" (Carol Pope), discusses the development of a report card to evaluate educational outcomes for students with severe emotional and/or behavior disorders.
