Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center: An Overview. Volume I of III. Final Report.
Buffmire, Judy Ann
The first of three volumes on the Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center provides an overview of the Center's functioning from its inception in 1970 through 1974. A perspective is provided on regional resource centers (RRC) in general, including such aspects as the educational system's link to an RRC and the relationship of the RRC to the instructional process. Specifics of population, region, special educational services, philosophy and history are detailed for the Rocky Mountain RRC. The program is described with respect to the stratistician (service/training) component; the Outreach Program; operational aspects of the joint programs; training, service, evaluation and communication components; synopses of Project Outreach in Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming; program analysis; and program procedures and problems. Budget and staffing are considered. The above components are reported to have contributed to such accomplishments as the following: the development and field testing of the stratistician model of a special education resource person to regular classroom teachers; development of a training program for state or district personnel to use in training the resource person; facilitation of regional services in a four state region in priority areas identified by state leadership; and direct services to handicapped children and their teachers.
