To cope with the current educational reform and the implementation of Curriculum Guidelines for Compulsory Education (1-9), many schools are busy with forming curriculum committee to carry out the ideal of the professional autonomy in school-based curriculum development. Therefore this study was designed to conduct a two-year in-depth study (8/1/1999~7/31/2001) to examine related issues, emergent problems, and coping strategies involved in school-based curriculum development. The major tasks for the first year was to understand the problems and promises for implementing school-based curriculum development and to investigate the prerequisite conditions for school-based curriculum development. Based on the findings of the first year, the focus of the second year was on the in-depth examination of school-based curriculum development plans, the functions of school curriculum committee, strategies for school curriculum development, and the strengths and limitations of school-based curriculum development. This paper is a partial report of the research findings for the second year of study. It reports the problems that experimental schools in Taipei area have confronted during their second year of implementing school-based curriculum development. It also suggests some coping strategies that are useful for practitioners to put into practice the ideas of school-based curriculum development.
