Correlates of Successful Implementation and School Change: An Annotated Bibliography.
Castaneda-English, Patricia; Hord, Shirley M.; Saenz, Victor; Buttram, Joan L.
To gain information on how schools in the Southwestern region are implementing a new program, the staff of the Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) project undertook the development of a survey instrument. Based on the research on school change, the survey provides information to schools, districts, and state departments about the implementation of the CSRD program. To create an instrument grounded in the research on school change, CSRD staff consulted the literature, specifically on the implementation phase. A wide array of factors were identified for inclusion in the survey instruments. It was found that the references in this paper deepened understanding about what needs to occur in schools for such programs to be successfully implemented. These annotations are being published to facilitate the work of other researchers, state CSRD coordinators, school district staff, principals, and teachers who want to increase their understanding of the mechanics of change and implementation of new programs. Although the bibliography is not exhaustive, it focuses on and includes those references that identified successful implementation correlates. (DFR)
