Pipes, Lana, Ed.
This publication chronicles the activities at the June 1977 conference sponsored by the Rhode Island Teacher Center to explore the teacher center model as a means of meeting staff development requirements of Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The stated objectives of the conference were as follows: (1) to acquaint professionals in special education programs with the teacher center model as a staff development delivery system; (2) to acquaint professionals in preservice and inservice education with the staff development requirements detailed in the "Comprehensive System of Personnel Development" section of Public Law 94-142; (3) to bring together both types of professionals to discuss such issues as roles, responsibilities, needs, and resources to fulfill the mandates of PL 94-142 and the teacher center section of PL 94-482; (4) to provide an overview of the products, practices, and research knowledge base available in these areas; and (5) to present a forum for discussing the regulations for teacher centers authorized by recent federal legislation.
