This report describes the initial efforts of the New American Schools Development Corporation (NASDC), a private, nonprofit corporation created as part of the America 2000 initiatives to fund the development of new designs for American schools. The report describes the initial NASDC efforts and compares and contrasts the nine designs and their demonstration strategies. It addresses several questions: (1) What are the principal elements of the designs and how do the designs compare and contrast on these elements; (2) what approaches are being used to develop the designs; (3) what factors might affect the teams' ability to demonstrate their designs in the next phase; and (4) what are the implications of these differences for the next and following phases.
