National Association of State Directors of Special Education, Washington, DC.
Presented are the results of a survey of opinions of state directors of special education on short and long range planning for the efficient delivery of Regional Resource Center (RRC) services to state education agencies (SEAs). Listed among the research questions asked is "What are the opinions of state directors of special education on a number of specific questions related to the structure, activities, and management of the RRC system?" The survey instrument is noted to include 38 statements on the management and structure of a hypothetical "ideal" RRC system, 51 statements reflecting potential service needs of state education agencies in six areas (including fiscal needs), and nine questions on the structure and activities of the RRC system. The bulk of the document consists of tables in two sections: section I on management and structure and section II on SEA needs and the emphasis RRCs should extend in meeting each need. A final section includes the answers to 10 questions related to structure and activities of the RRC system. Appendixes contain a brief outline on the background of RRCs, a copy of the survey instrument, a list of states responding to the survey form, and the names and addresses of Consumer Input Conference participants who helped develop the survey instrument.
