Atlanta Follow Through Resource Center Final Report, 1977-78 and 1978-79.
Ballagas, Linda
Follow Through Resource Centers are a nationwide system designated to assist local school districts in improving their educational programs through adoption of exemplary educational programs at a fraction of the original development cost. Resource personnel develop materials for dissemination. Materials are presented in awareness sessions with the goal of adoption of educational programs by school systems. This document presents the findings of the evaluation of the Atlanta Follow Through Resource Center after it was in operation for two years. The Center was found to have evolved considerably since its inception and was able to increase dissemination efforts. In comparison to other Follow Through Centers, which had not been able to obtain program adoptions, the Atlanta Center obtained five. The adoptions were negotiated as a result of awareness sessions. Evaluations completed by awareness session participants indicated that the session goals were accomplished. Funding by the U.S. Office of Education was increased to the Atlanta Program, which may be considered an indication of national success. It is recommended that a formative evaluation of Resource Center activities be conducted. (MK)
