Abstract: This evaluation assesses the accomplishments of the CSR program in implementing school reform and thereby improving student achievement. The evaluation also makes a preliminary assessment of the conditions influencing the sustainability of reforms once federal CSR funding ends. The evaluation uses a variety of data sources to understand the complex interplay of state policies, school districts, educational support, and CSR school conditions affecting CSR implementation and outcomes. The major evaluation questions are: (1) To what extent have CSR-supported schools made gains on state assessments in comparison to gains for schools in the PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3489 same state with similar characteristics; (2) How effective is CSR support for reform; (3) How have district policies and state policies affected CSR implementation and comprehensive school reform; (4) What implications can be drawn from CSR implementation and outcomes for reform in Title I schoolwides; and (5) How effective are various school reform activities in secondary schools, and to what extent can school progress be linked to comprehensive school reform. A mixed method approach will be used to collect appropriate data for addressing each evaluation question. The methods include mail surveys of 500 CSR program and non-CSR program schools, online surveys of 50 states and 65 school districts, and case studies of 40 ‘‘sites’’ to produce an understanding of the dynamic of the actual relationships among school, district, and state actions, policies, and practices (each ‘‘site’’ consists of a CSR school and matched comparison school as well as the district, state, and support infrastructure in which the schools operate). Evaluators will be able to link information from these various sources in order to provide policymakers and other stakeholders with coherent findings.
