ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Seton Hall University
Preparing high school students for work in a global economy means that high schools must reinforce personal and social responsibility inside and outside of school and simultaneously seek opportunities for students to engage in educational activities that are relevant in a changing world. This study assessed administrators' perceptions of the effectiveness of high school programs based on reports by students about their school experiences based on responses given on the High School Survey of Student Engagement (HSSSE, 2007). These perceptions served as a basis for administrators to begin a redesign plan for a small high school. The design of this study used quantitative data collected on the HSSSE (2007) to assess student engagement and qualitative research methods to assess the relationship between high school students' perceptions of school experiences and the perceptions of the administrators of their school. Furthermore, this study attempted to develop recommendations for how data on student engagement might inform the redesign of a small high school by a redesign committee.
