|This book presents an intensive, detailed process for holding accountable all of the players involved in establishing community-connected learning as a whole-school reform strategy - schools, business and community partners, post secondary partners, and school districts. Benchmarks for Success describes the experiences of school districts in two communities - Boston, Massachusetts, and North Clackamas, Oregon - that are implementing and evaluating community-connected learning. Boston is an example of a district where school-to-career is becoming the rule in its high schools. North Clackamas piloted community-connected learning on a very limited basis, and now has expanded it to include focused programs of study in all the district’s high schools beginning in fall 2000. By tying real-world performance measures to each stage of program implementation, the benchmarking process provides concrete, realizable steps for which all participants in the reform process can be held accountable.|
