Efforts this decade to redesign the Sacramento, Calif., schools have yielded a greatly expanded array of options for students and have helped improve educational outcomes, including a higher graduation rate, suggests a reportRequires Adobe Acrobat Reader from the school district and a group that helped lead the initiative.

High school choices for students have expanded from six to 42 since the program started, says the report, jointly issued by the 47,000-student Sacramento district and LEED—Linking Education and Economic Development, a Sacramento-based nonprofit group.
