Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center: Project Outreach. Volume III of III. Final Report.
Buffmire, Judy Ann
The third of three volumes on the Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center (RMRRC) explains how that Center functioned as an Outreach project through which federal monies were allocated to Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming for special educational activities that were defined by the states in accord with the law on RRCs. The report covers the period from 1970 through 1974. An overview of the Outreach program is provided. Separate reports from each of the four states detail the state's Outreach program, describe its methods, procedures and activities and summarize results. Included is a third party evaluation report for the 1973-74 Outreach component of the RMRRC which was based on the following measures: review of the legal contracts between each of the four states and the RMRRC, development of a program-plan outline by the state staff of each Outreach project, review of all interim reports, workshop reports, documents and products developed by the Outreach projects, and structured individual interviews with the State Director of Special Education and the staff of the Outreach projects. Procedures and outcomes of a regional conference on services for the severely multiply handicapped are noted. The final chapter reviews major outcomes of the Outreach program from the perspective of the Center and its operations. (GW)
