High School Redesign
"Education for the 21st Century (e21) High School Redesign Initiative: Report to the Community 2002-2007 and Beyond"
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
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.
The district’s graduation rate increased from 76.1 percent in 2002-03 to 86.8 percent in 2005-06, despite increased graduation requirements, it adds.
