Emphasis on Excellence in School Media Programs. Descriptive Case Studies Special-Purpose Grant Programs.
Eight elementary high schools in New York, North Carolina, Oregon, California, and Kansas were awarded $635,253.00 in Federal funds to develop demonstration media programs. This stimulated, directly and indirectly, additional professional and clerical media personnel, provision of new media services at the school district level, increased school district budgets for media programs, improved facilities for school media centers, improved accessibility of materials and services, provision of new kinds of materials, and provision of materials production centers and electronic information retrieval capabilities. Interviews with students, teachers, media specialists, principals, and visitors showed some degree of positive change in curriculum and instruction, utilization of materials by teachers, school and community attitudes, pupil behavior, and the Media Center Materials Collection itself as a result of the funding.
