Northeast Regional Exchange, Annual Report, January 1982.
The activities of Northeast Regional Exchange, Inc. (NEREX) during its first year of operation are delineated in this report. The newest member of the national network of Research and Development Exchanges (RDx), this service agency was established to promote educational improvement in the seven northeastern states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The report presents information on: (1) NEREX governance and staff; (2) NEREX regional and state priorities; (3) the NEREX evaluation procedure; (4) major NEREX services, focusing on information and resource sharing in the areas of basic skills instruction, use of computer software, and current issues in teaching; and (5) other 1981 NEREX activities including a survey on the topic of effective schools, support of various individual state projects, and participation in the RDx network. Figures provide a listing of 1981 board of directors' meetings, an inventory of NEREX priorities, a breakdown of expenditure by regional priority and by state, and a compilation of NEREX's specific first year tasks. Appendices contain lists of members of the NEREX board of directors and advisory committee, four extensive tables on the scope of NEREX's work and resources, and a brief record of educational organizations working with NEREX during 1981.
