School Community Journal, v15 n1 p15-28 Spr-Sum 2005
The general purpose of this study is to present post-funding Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) data to address the more lasting features of CSR programs, their relation to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and support of its requirements, and the impact of CSR on student achievement. For the schools included in this study, many of the components of CSR are continuing to be implemented, and the majority of the schools continued to implement the specific CSR model, suggesting that CSR was sustained in many sites. In terms of student achievement, the implementation of CSR was associated with enhanced student achievement for this set of schools, and the student achievement results had improved over the past four years in most schools. In general, the schools felt that CSR had helped the schools implement effective practices and programs, one of the major goals of NCLB. (Contains 5 tables.)
