The Community Schools Study Plan.
Ohio State Legislative Office of Education Oversight, Columbus.
This study plan outlines the evaluation protocol to be carried out in Ohio's community schools (charter schools). The plan was generated by the state's Legislative Office of Education Oversight, which is required by law to evaluate start-up and conversion community schools in the state. The plan is guided by the following questions: (1) What are the core reasons for starting a community school? (2) What do community schools look like? (3) What are the processes and dynamics of community schools? (4) What is the process for becoming a community school? (5) What is the financial status of Ohio's community schools? (6) What effects do community schools have on academic achievement? (7) How satisfied are students, parents, and teachers with their community school? (8) How do community schools gauge and assess their performance? (9) What are some of the possible effects that community schools have on public schools? (10) What impact do planning and start-up funds have on the success or failure of community schools? and (11) Under what conditions should the General Assembly support community schools after 2003? The report outlines the study methods, the plan of action, and the team tasks and annual reports to be generated over the 5 years of the study project. Six appendices contain data elements to be collected, study questions, and other information. (RJM)
