An Evaluation of The Kentucky Development and Technical Assistance Community Education Project, as Part II of The National Community Education Evaluation.
An evaluation study examined the effectiveness of the training and technical assistance provided, amount and type of assistance provided, and results and benefits of a project to provide community education training and technical assistance in Kentucky. Result evaluation data were obtained from community education practitioners by a questionnaire. Process evaluation data were obtained from selected questionnaire data and from records and reports provided by State Department of Education (SDE) personnel. Findings indicated that the State Resource Network Team (SRNT) has generated significant training and technical assistance activity. The SDE was identified as the prime provider of help. Face-to-face consultation and workshops were the greatest utilized methods in providing training and technical assistance. Ninety-eight percent of the respondents evaluated help as being either very useful or useful. There appeared to be additional need and desire for continued community education support. Respondents also indicated that benefits resulting from community education have been positive and that communities reflected these benefits. Of twenty-six new districts, sixteen made steps toward providing community education-type activities. (The questionnaire is appended.) (YLB)
