Here are the schoolwide reform programs in place during the 2000-01 school year in the Memphis public school district, along with the number of schools in the city in which those models were being used. Some schools used more than one of the programs. Two of the models, Middle School Initiative and Widening Horizons Through Literacy, were locally developed.
