Summary

This study examined the involvement of students with disabilities in the New American Schools Development Corporation (NASDC) projects. The report begins with a description of the competition to select demonstration projects that would create teams to design, implement, and disseminate "break-the-mold" schools to bring about educational reform. The winning designs are individually described, with particular attention to the ways that each professed its intention to meet the needs of students with disabilities in their implementation sites. The projects include: (1) Atlas communities; (2) Audrey Cohen College Design Team; (3) Bensenville Community Design; (4) Community Learning Centers of Minnesota; (5) The Co-NECT School; (6) Expeditionary Learning; (7) Los Angeles Learning Centers; (8) The Modern Red Schoolhouse; (9) The National Alliance for Restructuring Education; (10) The Odyssey Project; and (11) Roots and Wings. The study concludes that, as of the first part of 1993, little attention had been paid to the inclusion of students with disabilities in the NASDC project designs, and descriptions of some of the NASDC projects suggest that students with disabilities would require significant modifications for meaningful participation. Appendixes show the number of proposals received by NASDC from each state, list advisory panel members, and supply addresses of the selected projects. (Contains 30 references.) (Author/JDD)
