Searching for Coherence

This article describes how the Coalition of Essential Schools Northwest/Small Schools Project (CESNW/SSP) works with schools and districts to help them shape and then implement a coherent strategy that will lead to a redesigned high school system. The author highlights efforts taking place in two multiple high school districts: (1) Cascades School District; and (2) Olympic Public Schools. The focus in both districts on creating smaller, more personalized high schools and on supporting adult learning holds considerable promise and has moved these districts forward in substantial ways over the past five years. Their skill in carving a path based on differentiation rather than standardization may determine whether they are able to reach the standards they have set for themselves, their school, and their students.
