Summary

A study was conducted to describe the population of alternative models for comprehensive school reform in the region served by Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL). The study addressed the questions of whether schools that did not propose to adopt widely known or implemented reform models were able to design a reform process that met current thinking about effective reform as evidenced by the nine criteria specified for acceptable Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) applications. Of particular concern was the presumed lack of availability of technical assistance in the rural areas of the central United States served by McREL for alternative models compared to that typically provided by developers of nationally known models. Contrary to expectations, however, an examination of CSRD applications submitted (56 funded and 109 nonfunded) suggest that sites selecting alternative models were not judged as lacking in planned technical assistance. Further study as CSRD programs are implemented in these schools will indicate the degree to which the applications match practice. One appendix contains a rubric for rating alternative model applications, and the other contains descriptions of the alternative models studied. (Author/SLD)
