Improving America's Schools:
A Newsletter on Issues in School Reform

Funded and Distributed by the U.S. Department of Education

October 1996

This is the fourth in a series of newsletters intended to help schools, districts, and states explore key topics in education reform. Each issue focuses on a critical reform element, describes current thinking and activities, and offers sources of additional information. The newsletters share ideas with educators nationwide on how states and school districts are reforming education and how federal programs and initiatives can help.

This issue of Improving America's Schools discusses how federal, state, and local resources can support all students in schools serving large proportions of students at risk. The issue describes: (1) what a schoolwide program is; (2) how to plan a schoolwide program and where to find technical assistance and professional support; (3) education strategies schoolwide programs use to create challenging learning opportunities for all students; and (4) information and technology resources available to help schoolwide programs confront the challenges of change.
