Overall, the "CSRD in the Field" visits revealed great enthusiasm and hope for the CSRD program. The districts and schools recognized the need for, and were committed to, change and improvement. Visitors observed a great variety in the models selected by schools, the process schools used to research and develop staff support for reform models, and how models are being integrated into a vision of entire-school change. There is also significant variety in the role districts are playing in helping schools choose models and supporting comprehensive reform in CSRD schools. The visits also revealed some of the common challenges districts and schools are facing as they implement comprehensive reform strategies.
