Summary

Aiming High: High Schools for the 21st Century is built on the legacy of Second to None, California's visionary guideline for high school reform. Aiming High is a how-to document for implementing a standards-based educational system. The document helps to place standards-based education in the context of California's accountability system that includes state standards and local outcomes. The document's focus is to guide schools in "doing the right things" and in "doing things right." Elementary and middle grades publications are also available.

Districts and schools moving towards a standards-based educational system will find Aiming High a resource for: 1) defining standards and outcomes and how schools and individual students are assessed for them; 2) delineating how to identify, teach, and assess academic standards and local outcomes successfully; 3) providing supports to enable students to meet high standards and outcomes; and 4) using data for continual improvement of the system.
