Community Schools in Ohio: Implementation Issues and Impact on Ohio's Education System. Volume II: Overall Characteristics and Individual School Profiles.
Ohio State Legislative Office of Education Oversight, Columbus.
Community schools were created in Ohio to provide additional educational options for children in low-performing schools and to develop innovative teaching and management techniques that may be transferable to traditional public schools. In 1997 the Ohio General Assembly required the Legislative Office of Education Oversight (LOEO) to evaluate the community school initiative in Ohio. This is the fourth in a series of five reports that evaluate the ongoing implementation of community schools and their impact on student academic achievement and on Ohio's education system as a whole. This fourth report consists of two volumes. Volume II describes the overall characteristics (including enrollment information, demographics, and educational approach) of community schools and provides individual profiles of 88 schools that operated during the 2001-02 school year. Included are numerous maps, graphs, and tables. Appended are a list of community schools by sponsor and a list of community schools that have closed or suspended operations. (WFA)
