The State Role: A Documentation Report of Services to Teacher Centers Funded Through the Federal Teacher Centers Program. Executive Summary.
Baker, Janice M.
The National Teacher Center Resource Center provides information and technical assistance to help state/territory teacher center coordinators fulfill three federally mandated areas of responsibility: (1) reviewing teacher center proposals; (2) providing technical assistance to federally funded teacher centers; and (3) disseminating information about teacher center products and results. The Resource Center collected information on these three functions from teacher centers receiving federal funds. This report highlights the methodology and findings on the background information and describes services logged for this documentation effort. The study design was limited to technical assistance and dissemination services provided through the ten percent entitlement to states by the federal Teacher Centers Program. Through their acceptance of the ten percent state entitlements, state teacher centers agreed to provide services in two areas: technical assistance and dissemination. For purposes of this study, a segment of technical assistance was separated from that area of service and labeled proposal development; therefore, the findings are presented for three areas of service: proposal development, technical assistance, and dissemination. Descriptions are given of participating states and a summary of state teacher center services is provided. (JD)
