Increasing Capacity for Statewide Dissemination. Final Report.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This report describes the Oregon Department of Education's 5-year Capacity Building Program (CBP), which had as its primary goal the development of a management plan and an information network to provide access to educational resources in response to state and local needs. A discussion of program goals is followed by a review of CBP management activities, including the establishment of an interagency council for the professional development of school personnel, the formation of consortia of school districts for resource sharing, and the establishment of the Northwest Regional Exchange (NWRx) to coordinate resources in the region. Also reported are activities undertaken to improve and expand existing resources, steps taken toward the establishment of statewide linkage between local and regional information centers, and the variety of training programs developed during the project. A comparative analysis of dissemination capacity in 1976 and 1981, an overview of materials assembled on sexual, racial, and social equity during the project, and a discussion of the project's overall impact are also included. A sample page from the Oregon Educational Services and Resources Directory is appended. (JL)
