Comprehensive School Improvement: Addressing the Challenges.
Morrissey, Melanie S.
Issues...about Change, v9 n1 2000
This report, coupled with current nationwide interest in encouraging schools to adopt comprehensive reform strategies or programs, urgently communicates the need for school improvement. Many schools, which are not supported by adequate funding, continuous professional-development programs, and active parent involvement, are the ones struggling to meet the needs of their students. The Southwest Educational Development Laboratory has engaged the Facilitating Implementation of Reform Strategies and Tactics project to provide a systemwide look at comprehensive school improvement while simultaneously working with schools that are undertaking reform efforts. For the purposes of this work, "comprehensive school improvement" is an inclusive term for engaging an entire school staff in an in-depth study of the teaching and learning process. (DFR)
