Profiles of Innovative Exemplary School Programs in Kentucky [1974-75].
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
Eleven projects funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III, and providing funds to public school districts to demonstrate the feasibility of education innovations, are sketched in this booklet of exemplary and innovative school programs in Kentucky. Programs are categorized according to regions, and focus on: regional innovations and services for education; an operational design to facilitate change within a region; early diagnosis of disabilities through in-service training; diagnostic instruction; open non-graded career and environmental programs; environmental and early childhood education; curriculum and staff development and supplementary educational services; application of computer concepts for elementary and secondary schools; year-round school; success for the handicapped (homebound) pupils and model resource room for mentally handicapped pupils; and a statewide facilitator project. Added emphasis is said to have been placed upon evaluation, dissemination of public information and program development, adoption of exemplary programs, and both money and program accountability. Two ESEA Title III funded projects in Kentucky's Region II and III have been validated as being worthy of widespread dissemination. (Author/AM)
