Presented by the Texas Education Agency, this guide describes 75 validated programs approved for replication by the Demonstration Programs for School Improvement (DPSI) statewide steering committee for 1981-83. Administered by the Division of Dissemination, the network enables public and private school educators to visit, study, and adopt proven programs to meet specific local needs. Following guidelines on how to become a DPSI program and how to adopt a program, a note on adoption costs, and a list of regional facilitators, the manual describes each program as to program focus, target population, objectives, activities, developmental funding, superintendent, and program contact person.
