The State Role: A Documentation Report of Services to Teacher Centers Funded Through the Federal Teacher Centers Program. Final Report.
Baker, Janice M.
This document reports on the activities of state and territory teacher center coordinators in using the ten percent entitlement funds provided by the federal government to provide services to federally funded teacher centers. The major focus of the study was the documentation of the proposal development, technical assistance, and dissemination services provided to the state and territory teacher center client groups. The report describes the participants in the documentation study and gives background information on the teacher center coordinators and other state education agency staff whose salaries are paid, in whole or in part, through the federal Teacher Centers Program. The services logged by 32 coordinators reflecting the use of the 10 percent state entitlements are also described. Descriptions of selected activities are provided as a sample of the various services that were documented. Findings are described for all services combined, as well as for each of the three areas studied; proposal development, technical assistance, and dissemination. Several recommendations are offered for the Federal Teacher Centers Program, the National Teacher Center Resource Center, and the state education agencies. (JD)
