Title IV-C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act calls for maintenance of a state "innovative-exemplary program" to work with local education agencies in the development and dissemination of new educational projects. To date, over 126 Kansas districts have been involved in this program. This booklet discusses a number of innovative exemplary programs throughout Kansas, including PACE (personal and career exploration), SCORE (curriculum and classroom approaches for low achievers), ESED (education for the severely emotionally disturbed and autistic child), Project Master (computer-assisted instruction aimed at sharpening math and grammar skills), PIC (Piaget's theories in the classroom), SPICE (sequential planning for instruction of career education), the Wichita Energy Center (a central location for energy information, energy-oriented curriculum development, and energy inservice education), COST (consumer economics), SPARC (seniors and parents as resources in the classroom), IMPAC (identification of gifted children), Project Product (teacher assessment of student needs and student assessment of their own performance), Project Max (a competency-based education program), the Primary Gifted Program (special education services for gifted children), and KEDDS (facilitation of change and resources for local school districts).
