Program Validation: Four Case Studies. A Brief Report on Four Projects and Their Experiences Before the Joint Dissemination Review Panel.
Taylor, Nancy, Ed.
In an effort to clearly illustrate the most effective approach when seeking Joint Dissemination Review Panel (JDRP) validation, this report describes four different educational programs. A program involving prekindergarten special students, and a project entailing a systems approach for disadvantaged elementary school students, were awarded validation. The other two programs were not. As a result, the Early Childhood Center (Ashland, Massachusetts) is no longer in existence; however, the U-SAIL project in Utah revised its presentation to JDRP, was awarded funding, and is currently an operative program. These four case studies provide step-by-step instruction in establishing eligibility for federal funding via JDRP. In addition to financial support, validation ensures a high profile on the national educational scene. This further benefit is also explored through the case studies. A listing of the members of the JDRP, a project application form, fact sheets on the four case studies, regulations of the National Diffusion Network, a list of the State Facilitator Projects, 1977-78, and a list of Development-Demonstrator Projects, 1977-78, are all appended.
