The purpose of this study was to identify the degree to which a set of conditions identified through a review of the diffusion of innovation and planned change literature were perceived to be present and significant in California school districts which chose to become Challenge Districts. The literature identifies that an organization is more likely to adopt an innovation or reform if the reform is perceived to be compatible with existing practices, has perceived publicity value, is responsive to external and internal pressure, is communicated between key individuals or groups, has the approval of peer elites, has a payoff, there is a belief that it can be successful, is compatible with district needs, and there is readiness for change in the organization
