One of the greatest challenges facing school districts today is the ability to sustain implementation of comprehensive school reform efforts at the high school level. In this inquiry project guided by the gap analysis framework, the project team examines how knowledge, motivation, and organizational variables impact reform implementation. The team finds that a lack of district goal clarity, inadequate systems of accountability, and a need for teacher training and support suitable to the cultural setting are major factors in the level of reform implementation. The team concludes by proposing recommendations based on best practices that can contribute to a desired level of reform implementation, including creating classroom goals that feed into school reform goals, maintaining a narrow and consistent organizational focus, and connecting cultural proficiency to pedagogy. Such actions can assist high schools in meeting the student achievement targets outlined by federal and state mandates for district and school effectiveness
