[Rural Futures Development (RFD), Rural Education Program (REP), Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory.] Final Report to the School Capacity for Problem Solving Group, National Institute of Education, November 30, 1975.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The REP contract with the National Institute of Education was through November 30, 1975. Under the contract terms the REP was to develop a set of RFD Strategies to strengthen the problem-solving capacities of rural school systems, communities, classrooms, and families. Defined as community, school, learner, support agency, and family centered, each strategy was composed of processes and products intended for use by local problem solvers or by state and regional agencies who could support local efforts. By November 30, 1974, several important considerations had prompted various modifications in the original scope of work. These included: discontinuation of the learner and family centered components; integration of the community, school, and family centered components; arrangement for a site for installing the integrated strategy; procurement of a second field test site; development of an evaluation plan for measuring the extent to which the strategy could produce desired outcomes; and addition of a diffusion planning component. As of November 30, 1975, the integrated RFD Strategy was being installed in a field site in Southeastern Utah; proto-type versions of the six specified products had been developed; the specifications for a seventh product had been prepared; a second field test site had been procured in Northeastern Washington; the evaluation plan had been developed; and a nine-state diffusion effort had been initiated.
