District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Div. of Research, Planning and Evaluation.
The District Facilitator Project assists local schools in improving their programs by disseminating information about Developer/Demonstrator projects and other resources of the National Diffusion Network; by helping schools identify their needs and select appropriate programs; by providing technical assistance and training for schools installing a new program; and by providing assistance for exceptional projects to be validated for inclusion in the National Diffusion Network. The District Facilitator Project uses a five step process: (1) awareness; (2) interest; (3) pilot adoption; (4) evaluation; and (5) adoption/adaptation. During the 1979-80 school year, the District Facilitator Project held eight awareness sessions covering eighteen projects and four training sessions on ten projects for teachers and administrators in the District of Columbia. Twenty different projects were adopted and technical assistance and post-adoption monitoring were provided. Evaluation results indicated that the District Facilitator Project was successful. (MK)
