Lake Region Special Education Cooperative, Devils Lake, ND.
The project was sponsored by the Lake Region Special Education Program, a special education cooperative serving 22 school districts of rural northeastern North Dakota. Funding for the 2-year project came from ESEA Title IV-C, state, and local agencies. The major goals of the project were to train and educate personnel so that at the end of the project, they would fully meet state certification requirements for teaching learning disabled (LD) students and continue in future years to serve children in the Lake Region area. A secondary goal was to provide immediate services for approximately 150 students in the area. This final report, covering July 1, 1981-June 30, 1982, provides details concerning the selection criteria and training of the teachers through university courses and inservice administered by the University of North Dakota. Three approaches used to evaluate the project are described. Forms used in a survey which compared LD teacher training methodology and the third party evaluation report are included. Additionally, the report contains: budget data, job descriptions, financial statements, evaluation worksheets, and other data compiled during the project. (AH)
