The purpose of this project was to design a process model detailing the evaluation procedure for a high school self-study required for state and regional accreditation. To accomplish this purpose, a review of current literature regarding school self-study, restructuring and educational reform was conducted. The project, describing a collaborative approach, included the planning and organization of staff workshops, a description and implementation plan for the interactive activities used in the evaluation process, and the preparation of the self-study project which was submitted to the South Central School District School Board, the Office of the Superintendant of Public Instruction and the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. The process model was designed for use at Foster High School, Tukwila, Washington.
