Mississippi State Capacity Building Project: Mississippi Dissemination Program--Linking Mississippi Educators. Final Report.
Hatten, Clyde J.; Barlow, John
The Mississippi State Department of Education Dissemination Program undertook a five-year plan from 1980-1985 to develop a coordinated, comprehensive statewide dissemination system for public school improvement throughout the state. The major objectives of the project were to develop the following: (1) a system for collecting, storing, retrieving, and delivering information to Mississippi local education agencies through State Department of Education linking agents and local school media specialists, and (2) a system for discovering the sources of information of all kinds that would be valuable to Mississippi educators as they make decisions that lead to improved educational practices and programs. This document describes the Mississippi dissemination plan in the three key areas of leadership, linkage, and information resources. The first part of the report, "Program Narrative," provides introductory material on this threefold approach, and concludes with a year-by-year overview of the plan in these three areas for each of the five years. The second part lists and describes program accomplishments and activities in each of the three areas. A brief summary of objectives and accomplishments follows and the report concludes with eight short statements on the institutionalization of the project. (TE)
