IMPAQ International, in collaboration with Child Trends and WestEd, is conducting an Institute of Education Sciences (IES) sponsored exploratory study to 1) identify promising strategies for providing parents with high-quality information that will help them to make effective school choices and 2) examine the feasibility and design of an impact evaluation focused on this topic.  The project includes conducting a literature review and consulting with experts in school choice about the key factors associated with school information plans; collecting information on the school choice information strategies being implemented in a sample of districts; and developing the design for an evaluation of an intervention in the area of school choice information.
