Follow-Up Study of Schools Implementing Comprehensive School Reform in the Southwest. Evaluation Report.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) programs were implemented in 1998 in five states working with the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL). SEDL's five-state region includes Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. This study examined the implementation status of CSR programs since funding ended. Two hundred and sixty-eight surveys were distributed to schools that received CSR funding. In addition, on-site visits were conducted to a sample of school in each state. School and student performance, as available, was also examined. This study examines the following four aspects of the Comprehensive School Reform programs: (1) Student performance; (2) Program components still in place ; (3) Factors contributing to program continuation; and (4)Information on the model provider. Appended are: CSR Models Used in Five States; Letters of Support from State Departments of Education; Site Visit Summaries; and Surveys. (Contains 26 tables and 4 graphs.) (Author)
