PLANNING FOR EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION IN A RURAL STATE. FINAL REPORT.
BAKER, NEWTON H.
IN REGION 3 AND 5 OF VERMONT, A TITLE III PLANNING PROJECT WAS INITIATED TO DETERMINE THE BEST SOLUTIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION. THE CHIEF CONCERNS REVOLVED AROUND CURRICULAR PROGRAMS, LEADERSHIP AND SUPERVISORY PRACTICES, AND SPECIAL SERVICES FOR STUDENTS. THE PROJECT SERVED 105 SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN NORTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHEASTERN VERMONT. INCLUDED IN ITS SCOPE WERE ALL THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY PROGRAMS, K-12, IN BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS. MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES WERE--(1) TAKE AN INVENTORY OF CURRENT EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES, (2) IDENTIFY AND PUBLICIZE INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IN AREAS OF CURRICULUM, LEADERSHIP, AND SPECIAL SERVICES, (3) ARRANGE SITE VISITS BY EDUCATORS TO PLACES WHERE THE INNOVATIONS WERE IN OPERATION, (4) DISSEMINATE INFORMATION ABOUT SELECTED INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS, AND (5) DRAFT A TITLE III PROJECT PROPOSAL FOR OPERATIONAL GRANTS BASED ON THE FINDINGS OF THE PLANNING GRANT. THIS LAST RESPONSIBILITY WAS NEVER ACCOMPLISHED BECAUSE A DECISION WAS MADE TO ESTABLISH FIVE ACTION CENTERS UNDER A STATE PLAN RATHER THAN EACH REGION APPLYING FOR INDIVIDUAL OPERATIONAL GRANTS.
