Northeast Regional Education Planning Project. Final Report.
Northeast Regional Exchange Steering Committee, Boston, MA.
Created to facilitate the dissemination of information between researchers and the educational community, the Northeast Regional Exchange steering committee has defined needs, determined agency qualifications, identified priorities, undertaken a series of minigrant projects, and developed plans for the extension of these projects and a study of the organization of the seven member state education agencies. Six minigrant projects were funded and developed: a parent involvement project, a school community relations project, application of futures research in long range planning, management practices for controlling energy costs, a coordinated comprehensive system for management of basic skills, and application of microprocessors in the schools. Future priorities for consideration, as addressed by state agency chiefs, call for appropriate decision roles for parents in schools, management measures of energy efficiency and effectiveness, strengthening of building management capabilities, experiential equity for rural populations, reinforcement of school board decision making powers and skills, interstate regional futures planning, local and state management and moral inventories, extension of the education continuum, a reexamination of the labor intensive pattern of school personnel utilization, and an emphasis on quality in school programs.
