Paper one of this folio presents a literature review of school improvement. The literature was accumulated under five components: factors related to school improvement; conditions supportive of change; phases of curriculum reform; role of participants in the school improvement process; and steps for initiating the school improvement process. -- Paper two presents a synopsis of teacher attitudes toward school improvement as well as an evaluation of the progress of the school improvement process at one particular school site in St. John's, Nf. The primary sources of information include observation and informal discussion with various staff, analysis of documents such as minutes of meetings, and an audio-taped focus group session. -- Paper three consists of a review of two school improvement models and a third model, to be applicable to the particular school site studied in paper two.
