Lewis, Carol; And Others
This publication is a compendium of resources gathered to aid state education agency (SEA) staff members as they set about implementing the federal Teacher Centers Program established by Public Law 94-482. The document details (1) the role of SEAs as mandated in that legislation, (2) the responsibility of SEAs in the initial review and screening of Teacher Centers Program applications, (3) the legislative provisions concerning technical assistance by SEAs to funded teacher centers and the compensation available to them for such aid, and (4) SEA information dissemination activities concerning funded centers and available compensation for that effort. Checklists for activities in each of these areas are provided. Appendices include: (1) an overview of the Teacher Centers Program, taken from the U.S. Commissioner of Education's "Report on Teacher Centers"; (2) frequently asked policy questions on the federal mandate, the SEA's role, and local situations; (3) an annotated bibliography, citing books, pamphlets, speeches, and journal issues/articles considered as "must" reading, as well as a bibliography of periodicals consistently devoted to teacher centers; (4) National Teacher Centers Program state coordinators; and (5) other major resource centers.
